The back parlor sets the stage for In Memoriam, adapted for stage by Marlene Remington. Based on Christie’s And Then There Were None, five guests are invited to a secluded island for a party. They soon learn that they are trapped there by a sinister host who has retribution and revenge in mind.

Jackson’s masterpiece, The Summer People, comes alive in the dining room with Brainerd Duffield’s stage adaptation. A holiday couple visiting an idyllic New England town decide to extend their vacation a bit longer. Unbeknownst to them, they have violated a sacred taboo.

Candlelight Theatre resident playwright, James Trofatter, has adapted Poe’s, The Fall of the House of Usher for a chilling play in the master bedroom. The tale tells the bizarre story of Sir Roderick Usher who has become increasingly possessed by his house. Believing the house is sentient, he fights for his survival.
