Written by Karoline Leach
Downton Abbey meets Hitchcock, in this riveting psychological thriller set in Edwardian London. A handsome con-man — going by the name George Love — courts women, marries them, then takes their life savings and disappears. His latest target is lonely Adelaide Pinchin, but Adelaide has a peculiar effect on George, and almost nothing seems to go as he plans. Romance and suspense combine to create a tantalizing drama. Featuring Allison McLemore (The Turn of the Screw, The Nibroc Trilogy) and Justin Campbell (The Turn of the Screw).
“A compelling mix of style and substance that cloaks the play in an irresistible spell of emotional nuance and menace.”
Performances are July 11-21.
Wednesday-Saturday at 8 pm. Thursday and Sunday at 2 pm.
Production design is sponsored by Shelley and Richard Holzman.
