We're all stuck somewhere...

Veronica's Room   by Ira Levin

Director: Campbell Knox

Assistant Director: Gabrielle Johns

Dates: February 16 to March 6, 2022

This psychological thriller from the author of Rosemary’s Baby and Deathtrap explores the thin line between fantasy and reality.

Students Susan and Larry find themselves enticed to an old New England mansion by its dissolute caretakers to meet Cissie, the sole surviving member of the family. They insist that Susan bears a striking resemblance to Veronica, Cissie’s long-dead sister. If she will agree to briefly impersonate Veronica, they believe it will comfort the dementia-afflicted Cissie and allow her to die in peace.

But what begins as a simple act of kindness quickly spirals into a nightmare cycle of guilt and sacrifice...
