Stephen King considers The Haunting of Hill House one of the top three horror novels ever written. He isn't alone in his (terrified) admiration: The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, even the notoriously picky Dorothy Parker, have all praised Shirley Jackson's novella as the quintessential haunted house story, never to be out-done or out-spooked. Now after two film versions, The Haunting of Hill House has been adapted for the stage by Paul Edwards (winner of 2013 Jeff Award for Best Adaptation for City Lit's Peyton Place). Hoping to find "proof" of the supernatural, Dr. Montague rents Hill House, an abandoned mansion with a creepy reputation, and invites a select number of guests to join him there. Quickly, however, their stay goes horrifically awry. Learn More

The acting was first rate but unless you were a Lewis Carroll/Alice in Wonderland afficianado, the story, while clever, was a struggle.
The Chicago premiere of an unconventional look at the unconventional adventures of a girl named Alice. Five actors play 32 characters, including many of Lewis Carroll’s most famous creations, as they explore the relationship between the Oxford mathematics tutor and the little girl who inspired his literary legacy.
