Manktelow’s play tells the story of an amateur drama company rehearsing in the theatre at the end of a pier. Storms rage overhead and the doors are locked – they are trapped!
Events take a sinister turn when a mysterious, ghostly presence passes across the stage, and when the Assistant Stage Manager falls to certain death through a trapdoor, the remaining actors are thrown into disarray. Their panic increases when one of the actresses is poisoned and it becomes evident that a murderer is in their midst, who will not stop until they are all dead
The play features the talents of: Kathryn Elizabeth as Sandra, Marlina Marie Beebe as Ginny, Adam William Schmidtmann as Harry, Derek Potoki as Alex, Brenda Brown as Sylvia, Donald Crowe as Martin, and Beverly Cooney Poznoski as Moppet.
The production is under the direction of M. Marie Beebe, with Jaiden Beebe assistant director.
