Sept 18 - Oct 3

The PTG presents Ravenscroft, the first production of our 50th anniversary season.


Our 50th anniversary season opens with a murder mystery with humour and heart written by Don Nigro.

    On a snowy night, Inspector Ruffing is called to a remote house to investigate the headlong plunge of Patrick Roarke down the main staircase. He becomes involved in the lives of five alluring, dangerous women:
  • Marcy, the beautiful Viennese governess with a past
  • Mrs. Ravenscroft, the flirtatious lady of the manor
  • Gillian, her charming but possibly demented daughter
  • Mrs. French, the formidable cook
  • and Dolly, a terrified maid.

They lead him through a labyrinth of contradictory versions of Patrick’s demise.

There are ghosts on the staircase, skeletons in the closet, and much more than the inspector bargained for. His investigation leads into his own tortured soul and the nature of truth itself. You will not guess the ending but you will be teased, seduced, amused, frightened and led to a dark encounter with truth or something even stranger.
