Comedy thriller 'Ravenscroft' next at Circle Players

See also

Circle Players will present “Ravenscroft,” a comedic mystery written by Don Nigro.

This psychological drama is a thinking person's Gothic thriller, a dark comedy that is both funny and frightening. 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.

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 his own tortured soul and the nature of truth itself.

You will not guess the ending, but you will be teased, seduced, bewildered, amused, frightened, and led to a dark encounter with truth … or something stranger.

Alicia Harabin of Somerville is the director, and Ed Faver of Roselle is the producer.

Appearing onstage are Kristin Bennett of Montville, Thom Boyer of Somerville, Debbie Campanali of Towaco, Cody Dalton of Oakhurst, Roxanne Guarino of Metuchen, and Donne Petito of Hopewell.

The theater is located at 416 Victoria Ave., Piscataway.

Performances will be 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, March 7-22, with a 3 p.m. matinee Sunday, March 23.

A wine and cheese reception will follow the opening night performance.
