Lucy, sixteen and lost, is a fey occult investigatrix hungry for adventure. Amidst cooing doves, she tells of her alter ego, Imogen, who lives in a haunted house with her brother and his pet barnacle. He is plotting to murder the cousin who has inherited the mansion. The language is rich, strange and hypnotic as Lucy goes so deeply into her tales that she may not emerge sane while someone creeps through the moonlight with a rusty barnacle knife. This eccentric comedy is like an Edward Gorey drawing come to life. In Tales From The Red Rose Inn & Other Plays.
