This laugh-oriented, old-fashioned melodrama is based on Wilkie Collins' classic, and it is wild, fast, and funny. It features a disreputable (and hilarious) villain who dispatches his adversaries with nefarious ease, seals his wife in a madhouse to steal her vast fortune, and battles a wicked countess in one of the most uproarious fight scenes ever staged. When all else fails, he engineers mock funerals. But he's scared of the mysterious "Woman In White" who's escaped from the asylum to seek him out. Abandoned wives, insolent servants, lawyers, hypochondriacs, and manly drawing masters parade across the stage in gales of comedy, terminating only when the villain is brought to justice in an audience-cheering, outrageous, and spectacular finale. Designed for an easy rehearsal schedule and simple production, this delight is suitable for all groups looking for a play that's fun to perform.
