The Haunting Of Hill House - A Live Radio Play
By Tony Reitano
Directed by Lynda Sharpe
Heartline Theatricals announces its dramatization of the 1959 novel by Shirley Jackson, that Stephen King calls "one of the finest horror novels of the 20th century".
It is the story of four seekers who arrive at a New England Victorian residence called Hill House: Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of a "haunting"; Theodora, his lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, a friendless, fragile young woman well acquainted with poltergeists; and Luke, the future heir of Hill House. They are met by the stoic caretakers, Mr. and Mrs. Dudley and later, Mrs. Montague, oblivious to those around her, bossy under the guise of good intentions, assisted by her driver, Arthur. The House itself plays the most important role, slowly unraveling a sense of safety and sanity in its guests in this psychological chilling thriller.
"Hill House" is presented through an endowment from the "Beyond The Page" Series with The National Endowment For The Humanities and The Madison Community Foundation.
