The  Haunting of Hill House is a chilling and mystifying study in mounting terror in which a small group of “psychically receptive” people are brought together in Hill House, a brooding, mid-Victorian mansion known as a place of evil and “contained ill will.” As the group experiences unexplained events and unearths the house’s dark history, they begin to question their own sanity, as the evil forces of Hill House are goaded into a new and fatal fury.

Cast Descriptions: 

Eleanor Vance: Age range: Early 30’s. Protagonist. Reserved, aloof, plain-Jane type, with a somewhat morbid sense of humor. After 12 miserable years of caretaking her “invalid” and crass mother, she is thrilled to accept the invitation to be a summer guest of Hill House, while participating in a scientific study of the supernatural.
Theodore:  Age range: Mid-30’s. One of the four invited guests of Hill House, chosen due to her well publicized psychic abilities. She is a vivacious, charming, free spirit type, until she’s either hungry, bored, or not being properly admired.
Luke Sanderson: Age range: 35-45. Rakish, party-boy type with a wicked sense of humor. He is another of the invited guests, and the future heir of Hill House.
Dr. Montague: Age range: 50-60’s. A doctor of anthropology with a passion for parapsychology. His vanity leads him to conduct a scientific study on psychic phenomena at Hill House, with the goal of publishing a book on his findings that he hopes will bring him literary acclaim and great riches.
Mrs. Montague: Age range: 50-60’s. Pompous, flamboyant, highly eccentric, with keen interest in the paranormal, and obvious contempt for her husband.
Mrs. Dudley: Age range: 60-70’s. Cook and caretaker of Hill House. Mysterious, dour, with a cold, robotic-like demeanor.. Think “American Gothic”.
Arthur Parker: Age range: 60-70’s. Research assistant of Mrs. Montague. Prim and proper gentleman, and very handy with a gun.
