Directed by Laura Blanton

Elvira makes continual attempts to disrupt Charles's marriage to his second wife, Ruth, who cannot see or hear the ghost.

The Haunting of Hill House

This suspenseful dramatic play by F. Andrew Leslie (from the novel by Shirley Jackson) is a chilling and mystifying study in mounting terror in which a small group of "psychically receptive" people are brought together in Hill House, a brooding, mid-Victorian mansion known as a place of evil and "contained ill will." Led by the learned Dr. Montague, who is conducting research in supernatural phenomena, the visitors have come to probe the secrets of the old house and to draw forth the mysterious powers that it is alleged to possess -- powers which have brought madness and death to those who have lived therein in the past. Join us for this outstanding thriller presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service.
