FREMONT - The psychological drama, "Ravenscroft," is billed as a thinking person's Gothic thriller, a dark comedy funny and frightening. Fremont Community Theatre is to stage the production at 8 p.m. Nov. 9, 10, 16 and 17 and 2 p.m. Nov. 11 and 18.
On a snowy night, Inspector Ruffing (Mitchell Antesky) is called to a remote house to investigate the headlong plunge of Patrick Roarke down the main staircase.
Ruffing becomes involved in the lives of five alluring and dangerous women: Marcy (Candi Cantrell), the beautiful Viennese governess with a past; Mrs. Ravenscroft (Julie Evans), the flirtatious lady of the manor; Gillian (Lauren Meyer), her charming but possibly demented daughter; Mrs. French (Donna Wollenslegel), the formidable and passionate cook; and Dolly (Jenn Abdoo), a terrified maid.
Mitchell Antesky, as Inspector Ruffing, is surrounded by five mysterious women in Fremont Community Theatre’s production of “Ravenscroft.”
They lead him through a bewildering labyrinth of contradictory versions of Patrick's demise and that of the late Mr. Ravenscroft.
There are ghosts on the staircase, skeletons in the closet, and much more than the Inspector bargained for. His investigation leads into his own tortured soul and the nature of truth itself.
You will not guess the ending, but you will be teased, seduced, bewildered, amused, frightened and led to a dark encounter with truth - or something even stranger, according to organizers.
Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students and seniors.
For reservations, call (419) 332-0695. The theater is at 1551 Dickinson St., Fremont.
