A joyful embrace of melodramatic theatre and cinema which borrows freely from Wuthering Heights, Shakespeare, Victorian Penny Dreadfuls and the 1940 film Rebecca. Starring two performers playing multiple roles with countless wigs and quick costume changes - while featuring mummies, werewolves and ghosts - this madcap comedy is suitable for all ages.
