September 20 through October 19
Set in a brooding Victorian mansion high on a remote bluff above the Pacific Ocean, the play centers on the rich and eccentric Minerva Osterman, who has called together her potential heirs for the advance reading of her will. She knows that it will please some and disappoint others—unless they take the sinister steps necessary to protect their interests. Murder ensues, the will disappears, and a diabolic plot is revealed.
