A chilling and mystifying study in mounting terror in which a small group of “psychically receptive” people are brought together in Hill House, a brooding, mid-Victorian mansion known as a place of evil and “contained ill will.” 

Led by the learned Dr. Montague, who is conducting research in supernatural phenomena, the visitors have come to probe the secrets of the old house and to draw forth the mysterious powers that it is alleged to possess—powers which have brought madness and death to those who have lived therein in the past. Montague is played by Chris Eibach of Dunmore.

Margo L. Azzarelli is director. Other cast members are Marnie Azzarelli, Kaylah Hodgins, April Holgate, Peter Miles, Susan Parrick and Rafe Rickard.

Bob Balitski is designing the lighting and Dominick Azzarelli is set builder. Jeff Ginsberg is producer. Cathy Rist Strauch is publicist.
