Peter Colley sends up the haunted house bit with witty dialogue and at the next moment interrupts the audiences laughter with a good, heartthumping scare... a really good ghost story." - Toronto Globe and Mail

This play was filled with action and thought provoking situations. The stage directions in Act 2 were very detailed and it would be interesting to see this play live.
