The show was adapted for the stage by F. Andrew Leslie based on the 1959 novel by Shirley Jackson.You might have seen one of the big screen adaptations of the book, both titled ‘The Haunting,‘ released in 1999 and 1963.
Hill House is an eighty-year-old mansion built by Hugh Crain. The house is said to be filled with shadowy spirits and untold secrets. Under the care of Mr. and Mrs. Dudley, who refuse to stay near the house at night and “live in the town that’s six miles away,” the house has been empty for many years. This intrigues Dr. John Montague, an investigator of the supernatural. He invites three other people; Eleanor Vance, a shy young woman who resents having lived as a recluse caring for her demanding invalid mother; Theodora, a flamboyant, relaxed, artist, who is believed to have a physic connection; and Luke Sanderson, the young heir to Hill House, who is host to the others. Screams erupt in the house, spirits are seen and dark secrets revealed.
Have some fun and support your local high school’s theatre department.
