Strange, but very funny happenings, are occurring at the faded and eerie manor of Creeching Cheyney. An oddly assorted group of people are assembled on a snowy Christmas Eve to hear the reading of a will laying down certain stipulations before they can inherit their legacies. A creepy butler, who is not all he seems, skeletons, ghosts and rattling chains add to the excitement in the snowbound house and an uninvited guest, in the shape of a large Red Indian, rampages through this seasonal romp!
Staging the Play
A lightweight romp complete with slapstick chases and plot twists. This medium cast (5m, 5f) can be added to with non-speaking parts (ghosts and phantoms). The licence is available from Samuel French.
