Winner! 1991 Y.E.S. New Play Festival
Weird playwright Sebastian Sly, author of such all-time bombs as "Dial M for Morose," "The Cat and the Canard," and "Ten Little Ninjas," lives in a creepy old mansion called The Shadows. His arch enemy is the clever, but snide, drama critic Sylvia Frye. She hates stage thrillers and with her ruthless reviews, has forced Sebastian into retirement. In revenge, Sebastian invites her to his home where all manner of chills and thrills are trotted out to convince her she's wrong about his work. We meet an hilarious "cast:" the murderous Creeper; an old actress noted for her shattering screams; a butler named Skull and a housekeeper named Bones and that's just the beginning. Two likeable innocents, Zip and Lilac, show up and are terrorized by the insane goings-on. Ultimately, Sylvia exposes the plot. But Sylvia gets hers in the end!
