Gloom overhangs Mayhew Manor, touching all who dare enter. One hundred and fifty years of evil is about to be exposed. Curtis Mayhew, last male to bear the name, confronts a forty year old double murder. His wife Agnes is tortured by mental demons and by Ida, the sadistic servant who knows where all the skeletons are. Daughter Dolores is a famous psychologist who doesn't understand her family or her failed marriages. Clifford Brownell arrives to help Agnes through lonely days and terror filled nights. Instead he dashes them all back in time where death and destruction await. Is he an actor in this drama of the macabre, or is he the principal player? Sheriff Renfro is not certain where sanity ends and illusion begins. And what was his dead father's role in these twisted lives? His voyage of discovery is filled with heart stopping thrills, electric shock laughter and sudden fear revelations in this non stop thrill ride through the dark recesses of the mind. This Gothic tale of horror, love and death is sure to brighten a gray day and make restless a still night.

CHORUS SIZE

N/A (Not a musical)

AGNES MAYHEW - a lovely woman still referred to as "that rare beauty" at age 60. But for Agnes the metal torture of lost youth and betrayed love leaves her ever lost at 19, 39, and 59.
IDA STROME - past 60 but still hail, hearty and sadistic. Ida knows more about the Mayhews than the law allows. She rivalved Agnes' beauty at one time, perhaps surpassed it, but time has not been kind to her outer self and she was never kind to her inner self, nor to time. In fact, she has never been kind to anyone or anything.
CURTIS MAYHEW - a handsome man whose vigor belies his 67 years. A successful banker and ruler of a 150 year-old dynasty, he must not only protect the present but guard the past from all revelation.
SHERIFF JONATHON RENFRO - past 40, he is sure of his job and his manhood. That could all change as he enters ever deeper into the dark world of Mayhew Manor. For him there is no greater word than duty, but to whom does that duty belong?
CLIFFORD BROWNELL - 30s, a charmer attractive to women of all ages and all time. He is eternal, only the body changes. We've all seen him in many places, for he is forever young and seductive. Destroy him today and he'll return stronger tomorrow.
DR. DOLORIS MAYHEW-BRAUM - 36. She has her mother's beauty and her father's strength, but not their love. A world-famous psychologist, she knows how to dress, how to succeed, but never how to relate. How does one receive love when they know not how to give it?
