This play explores the thein line between fantasy and reality: madness and murder. Students susan and arry are enticed to the Brabissant mansion by it’s caretakers, the lonely Mackays. Struck by Susan’s resemblance to the deceased Veronica Brabissant they gradually induce her to briefly impersonate the dead Veronica to solace the only living Brabissant, the mentally disturbed sister who believes that Veronica is still alive.
Once dressed in Veronica 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?
