Additional Info

Gretchen and Margaret, best friends since childhood, married each other's brothers, both named Clyde, and are trapped in houses next to each other, Gretchen bitter and unhappy, Margaret fairly contented but not very bright. In this mysterious play set in the gazebo in the back yard, we are able to piece together a horrifying story of betrayals, attempted murder, and a terrible fatal accident on a rainy night long ago.
