Join us for a staged reading of “A Spirited Manor” by Kate Danley, directed by Tammis Doyle. Part of the FIRST DRAFT reading series presented by the Edmonds Driftwood Players and Driftwood After Dark.

A grieving widow. A house with secrets. And an invitation to a seance...

When Clara O'Hare's husband passed away, she felt her life was over. But when she moves into a new home to escape the memories, she discovers that she may not be alone... and there is something the spirits of the manor are dying to tell her.

A Spirited Manor is a Victorian penny-dreadful filled with thrills, chills, and laughs based upon the book by USA TODAY bestselling author, Kate Danley.

Runtime: 90-minutes without an intermission

*Trigger warning: A Spirited Manor is a Victorian penny dreadful, which was a cheap form of pulp fiction sold in the 19th century for a penny. These supernatural stories were based in the spiritualism movement and considered absolutely "dreadful." In feel, think Dracula written by a hack. A Spirited Manor contains violence, supernatural curses and creatures, Victorian world views, murder, references to guns, a few thrills and chills, (a bit of laughter), and... well... it's a penny dreadful. Ages 14+
