The Wings of Madness was heralded by Northshore Theatre in Mandeville, La. and the Columbia University writer Joyce Griffen. You can't go wrong when you combine the elements of a tacky funeral parlor on a highway outside New Orleans, a murdered beauty who taunts the audience while explaining why she was murdered and a coffin sitting in the audience (optional). Be prepared for a very Gothic evening. The bare stage and opening effect of a corpse coming alive create exciting visual opportunities.
