“Like being trapped in someone else’s nightmare…jarring and (with a) surprising climax…a neat, elegant thriller.” – Village Voice
In keeping with the scary season and opening October 21st., Veronica’s Room is a chilling mystery thriller by Rosemary’s Baby author Ira Levin.
The play explores the thin line between fantasy and reality, madness and murder. Students Susan and Larry find themselves as guests enticed to the Brabissant mansion by it’s dissolute caretakers the lonely Mackeys. Struck by Susan’s strong resemblance to Veronica Brabissant, long- dead daughter of the family for whom they work, the older couple gradually induce her to impersonate Veronica briefly to solace the only living Brabissant, her addled sister who believes Veronica alive. Once dressed in Veronica’s clothes, Susan finds herself locked in the role and locked in Veronica’s room. Or is she Veronica, in 1935, pretending to be an imaginary Susan?
Veronica’s Room contains mature themes and language (PG-13). Directed by Robert Meek (The Haunting of Hill House, Romeo & Juliet, Hamlet & The Tempest).
