F. Andrew Leslie, adapted from the novel by Shirley Jackson
Bottisham Players, October 10th-12th, 2002
Director's Note: "The Haunting of Hill House" is one of the classic types of ghost story - a group of people gather in an isolated house and... Strange things begin to happen!
Of course, the puzzle is who - or what - is behind the strange occurences?
Making them believable on a stage for an audience who are now used to accepting characters who have no reality off the screen has been quite a challenge, but an enjoyable one with such a committed cast and supporting company back stage.
Of course, the dark is all the more effective against a light background, and even Hill House can bear some laughter...
For this production, you will find yourself very close to the guests - perhaps too close at times - and what affects them may well affect you, too. So beware: Hill House has a reputation for insistent hospitality.
Welcome to Hill House!
