Synopsis: On a snowy night, Inspector Ruffing is called to a remote house to investigate the headlong plunge of Patrick Roarke down the main staircase. He becomes involved in the lives of five alluring and dangerous women: Marcy, the beautiful Viennese governess with a past; Mrs. Ravenscroft, the flirtatious lady of the manor; Gillian, her charming but possibly demented daughter; Mrs. French, the formidable and passionate cook, and Dolly, a terrified maid. They lead him through a bewildering labyrinth of contradictory versions of Patrick’s demise and that of the late Mr. Ravenscroft. There are ghosts on the staircase, skeletons in the closet, and much more than the Inspector bargained for. His investigation leads into own tortured soul and the nature of truth itself.

Accents: Accents will be used for this production.  We have an excellent dialect coach as part of the production team.  You do not need to use an accent for auditions, although you are certainly welcome to try one on.

Auditions will consist of readings from the script. Bring resume and known conflicts for the period September 12th through November 20th.  Rehearsals will be determined by the availability of those who are cast. Headshot not necessary but welcome.
