The Herringbone Saga
28 Feb, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
About the Show:
Lord & Lady Herringbone live in a crumbling manor in Sussex. They are broke and there are problems with crumbling masonry, dry rot and rats. Their Butler, Wick, is also past his use-by date.
Their Daughter Caroline comes up with an idea to restore the family fortunes, but this only leads to a number of skeletons coming out of the cupboard and dark secrets are revealed.
Despite this, their fortunes do revive slightly and all seems better, until the visit of a television show to the manor reveals an ages-old curse. The very heritage of the Herringbones is called in to question.
The characters are (stage ages only, anyone may audition):
Lord Alfred Herringbone, a pedantic relic, 70
Penelope, Lady Herringbone, 60
Caroline, their daughter, 30s
Wick, their aging butler, 70
Alyce, TV research assistant, mid-20s
