AMATEUR dramatics are set to return to the Marine Theatre in June with the Marine Players’ production of ‘The Haunting of Hill House’.
Based on the novel by Shirley Jackson and adapted for the stage by F. Andrew Leslie, the psychological thriller was also the basis for the 1963 film ‘The Haunting’ with Julie Harris, Richard Johnson and Claire Bloom, and more recently for a popular Netflix series.
Marine Players director Steve Miller said: “Hill House, its reputation for misery and death, is infamous. Strange deeds and strange events, pepper its past. A group of paranormal investigators arrive to seek answers.
“Is Hill House haunted? If so, what do the spirits want? Or whom?
“Shirley Jackson’s ‘The Haunting of Hill House’ is one of the world’s greatest spooky stories.”
The production was initially due to be staged in April last year but was postponed several times due to the coronavirus pandemic. Members of the Marine Players have been rehearsing virtually and have recently been able to start stage rehearsals.
Performances will be held at the Marine Theatre nightly from Wednesday, June 9 to Saturday, June 12 in accordance with COVID restrictions, meaning audience numbers will be limited.
