A Comedy Thriller
By Norman Robbins
Directed by David Charteris

1:30pm - 4:00pm


Set in a sinister old library presided over by a portrait of a grim-faced, mad-eyed old man. A dusty lawyer reads a will (involving millions of pounds) to an equally sinister family, one member of which has werewolf tendencies. By Act Three, there are more corpses than live members in the cast. All is revealed as the plot twists and turns to its surprising conclusion.
