    Baroque Theatre Company Present...
    The Haunting Of Hill House
    Saturday 30 August - 7.45pm

    A chilling and mystifying study in mounting terror in which a small group of psychically receptive people are brought together in Hill House, a brooding, mid-Victorian mansion known as a place of evil and contained ill will.

    Led by the learned Dr Montague, who is conducting research into supernatural phenomena, the visitors have come to probe the secrets of the old house and draw forth the mysterious powers which it is alleged to possess - powers which have brought madness and death to those who have lived there in the past.

    Directed by Adam Morley

    Produced by Claire Bibby

    Tuesday 23 - Saturday 27 September - 7.45pm

    Greg and Kate have been married for twenty odd years, their lives have changed, the children have left home and they have moved back from the suburbs to Manhattan and city life. They are reacting to their new lives in very different ways. Kate is excited at the prospect of her career finally taking off. Greg however is having a “male menopausal” moment and is finding his job deeply unsatisfying. 

    Along comes Sylvia, a vivacious stray dog Greg finds in the park (or perhaps she finds him) on an afternoon when he should be at work. His life takes on new meaning. He takes Sylvia home to the smart New York apartment where he and Kate live. Kate is less than enthralled by Sylvia and demands that Greg gets rid of the dog, but Greg is smitten. Sylvia plays up to him for all she is worth, delighted to find a new home. Kate’s place in Greg’s affections is threatened and she determines to get rid of Sylvia. Who will Greg chose?
