Who Killed Alan?

In the final scene, Alan is nowhere to be found among the asylum inmates. Can it be that it is Francis who has killed Alan, in order to have 'Jane' (or another woman) all to himself, and has gone mad because of his guilt feelings?

We never see Cesare kill Alan. We see a shadow on the wall, that looks like Cesare, but might it be the thief, or Francis?

... The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari completed its three week run in early November at the 40th Street Stage in Norfolk, Virginia. The play was performed by The Foppish Dandies. I attended with four friends and heard comments like "outstanding". It was a theater in the round presentation with some of the action taking place behind the audience, and several forms of multimedia were utilized, including video projection on the screen simultaneous with the actors on stage. In one scene the assistant to the Clerk of the Town Hall of Holstenwall handed a piece of paper to the actor on screen and he "took" it, resulting in chuckles from all.
It was fairly accurate as far as the original film of 1920 is concerned, although some of the characters, including the police investigators, dressed in late 20th century style clothing and spoke in modern word usage, which prompted my friend David to comment that this "Miami Vice" style of clothing and speech jarred one from the Expressionistic mood that the rest of the play accomplished.
