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

This production deserves a much larger audience than it got. The dialogue sparkles and sizzles. All of the actors perform admirably well. The male lead has the right degree of sophistication and urbanity and the female lead has a remarkable way of balancing her controlled "perfect hostess" external and public image with her tumultuous interior. The only negative was a lack of any real chemistry betyween the leads. While not a perfect production, it was highly enjoyable and a very good bargain at the goldstar prices.
The production features Don Bender and associate artistic director Cameron Feagin in the lead roles, and is directed by artistic director Terry McCabe.
