In an abandoned lighthouse off the New England coast live Abbie and Salem Mayo, two spinsters. Abbie is slightly pixilated and believes her dead brother is living in the lighthouse tower. Salem encourages her delusions. To this queer household comes Star Mayo and her friend, Pat Casey. They do not know of the two aunts, and the girls are soon plunged into a series of hair raising events. What was the Thing in the Tower? Why was Abbie afraid of the axe? Of what had Salem lived in fear for forty years? Six women---and an axe---have the power to chill the blood and raise hackles on the neck of the strongest man.
The living quarters of an abandoned lighthouse on Spider Island, off the coast of Main. The present.

CASTING

CHORUS SIZE

N/A (Not a musical)

ABBIE MAYO - a woman in her 60s, gentle, frail, with soft white hair, a vagueness of thought and action. Down East accent.
SALEM MAYO - a little older and more strongly built than Abbie, the firm one of the family.
DULLIE PEABODY - the hired girl, a gawky Yankee of about 19. Clumsy in manner.
STAR MAYO - a tall, slender, lovely girl of 21. Intelligent, quick-thinking, practical.
PATSY CASEY - her boon companion, is the same age or younger; direct contrast of Star in appearance, short, pudgy, unstylish but good-natured and wise-cracking.
MEG CROSBY - an ancient old crone with stringy grey hair and a cracked voice.
DANIEL - an extra part, without lines, and may be played by a woman - possibly the stage manager. (Should not be listed in the program.)
