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.
