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

Quotes & Highlights
McCabe’s two previous adaptations of Sherlock Holmes material, Holmes and Watson and The Hound of the Baskervilles, were both Jeff-nominated in the Best Adaptation category.
“Detection is, or ought to be, an exact science,” Holmes tells Watson, “and ought to be treated in the same cold and unemotional manner.” Thank heavens Watson ignored him; the good doctor’s natural storytelling gifts make this one of the greatest Holmes tales.
Cast: Don Bender, Jerry Bloom, Linsey Falls, David Fink, Nick Goodman, Greg Kolack, Drew Longo, Brian Pastor, Ed Rutherford, Andrew Shapiro, Judy Lea Steele, and Shawna Tucker
