On a dark and stormy night, six mysterious guests show up at a stereotypically creepy mansion having
each received a cryptic invitation from an unknown host. However, as their host’s true intentions are
revealed and the night takes a deadly turn, everyone must scramble to catch the killer and try to leave
the mansion alive.
This raucous comedy requires a dynamic ensemble of actors to bring it to life with chutzpah and gusto,
and will no doubt be a show to remember! (for those who make it out alive)…


Characters Summary:
