About the Play:

 

When two teenage sisters spend the night in the old Victorian house of their aunt Mary, they find their imaginations interfering with their sleep. Mrs. Darkways, the housekeeper, comes to their door to warn them against sleeping in this room—this haunted room. The terrified girls discover the story of their ancestors, a cursed ruby and ghastly murders. This eerie story has its share of humor and even a double surprise ending.

Characters

Melissa Brent (F, 18-20 years): Elder sister, she is a young lady prone to romantic ideas.

Alison Brent (F, 16 - 18): Younger sister, she is prone to dramatic ideas.

Miss Valentine (F, 60s- 70s): Elderly spinster, rather flighty.

Mrs. Darkways (F, 40s – 60s): Dressed entirely in black, she is dark and sinister; a queen of the melodramatic.
