Our third world premiere Shirley Jackson adaptation, staged by three-time Jeff-winning adapter Paul Edwards. Jackson's eerie, wickedly comic novel opens on the evening of the funeral of Lionel Halloran. His wife is convinced that Lionel was pushed down the stairs and murdered by his mother, who now stands to inherit the Halloran mansion, a house which is itself a character in the the story. Constructed by Lionel, it is laid out perfectly symmetrically, as are the grounds and garden. Only the sundial stands off-center, bearing the inscription: WHAT IS THIS WORLD?
