Be part of the creepy, yet one of the more page-turning scripts we’ve ever read!
“A seemingly quiet Victorian country home on the marshes of the Thames estuary becomes the backdrop for murder and madness…. a perfect example of psychological melodrama.”
Three Weekends – October 25 – 27, Oct 31 – Nov 3, and Nov 8 – 10. Performances at 8:00 pm. Sundays at 2:30 pm.
We will be auditioning for the following roles (all roles open):
Ellen Creed (40’s/50’s)
Lead role. Proud spinster who has fallen on hard times, has had to become housekeeper/companion to her old friend Miss Leonora Fiske. Character has hidden depths beneath a placid exterior.
Leonora Fisk (50’s-80’s)
A wealthy retiree who in her youth had been a chorus girl “of easy virtue”. Charming, vivacious, sentimental, spunky, and a hint of devilishness.
Louisa Creed (50’s-70’s)
Eccentric older sister to Ellen. Other half of sister Emily – they do everything together. Childlike tattletale.
Emily Creed (50’s-70’s)
Eccentric older sister to Ellen. Other half of sister Louisa – they do everything together. More contrary and cantankerous than Louisa.
Albert Feather (30’s)
Ellen’s ne’er-do-well glib nephew who is running from the law. He’s a charmer who seduces Lucy, the maid.
The saucy maid.
Nun (any age)
Small role – prying nun from the nearby priory.
