This psychological drama is a thinking person's Gothic thriller, a dark comedy that is both funny and frightening. On a snowy night Inspector Ruffing (Kyle Newmeyer) is called to a remote house to investigate the headlong plunge of Patrick Roarke down the main staircase. He becomes involved in the lives of five alluring and dangerous woman, including Mrs. Ravenscroft (Elizabeth Atkinson), the lady of the manor, her teenage daughter Gillian (Lauren Branch), the governess Marcy (Halla Motawi), the cook Mrs. French (Kaarina Quinnell), and the maid Dolly (Susan Toth Bernard). They lead him through a bewildering labyrinth of contradictory versions of Patrick's demise and that of the late Mr. Ravenscroft.
It's the perfect show to watch during the Halloween season!!!
