Season: 2019 Main Stage Season

Author: Tim Kelly

Director: Leslie Kimbell

Genre: Murder Mystery

Location: Colleen O Williams Theater, Winder, GA 30680


There's dirty work afoot at Ye Olde Wayside Inn, home of the eccentric Saltmarshes, Hepzibah and Arabelia, Cousin Ebenezer, and old Uncle Silas, oldest living lunatic in Massachusetts. The inn is also haunted by the ghost of an old soldier who deserted Washington at Valley Forge. Foul weather turns Cousin Ebenezer grim and dangerous, and he lures victims to the inn to get revenge for a past wrong. So when a storm forces several strangers to take shelter at the Inn, the chilling - or is it killing? - time begins!  Who will survive this dark and stormy night?
