Suspense and terror are interwoven with humor to provide a thrilling evening. Set in 1900, the play takes place in a large house on the British coast

The story revolves around Roane Shepperley, a blind girl, and her change from a girl into a woman

An accidental death is proved to be murder and it becomes obvious that a maniac is intent upon getting rid of those who are imperfect, making Roane next

An attempt on her life reveals the murderer to the audience but not to Roane. Slowly but surely all those in the house are taken care of until Roane faces the murderer alone a blind girl versus an unbalanced killer

"From the eerie opening to the final curtain, suspense was well sustained, comedy relief unforced, and never irrelevant" ~ Rutland Herald
