"No, my dear, you only imagine you're hearing footsteps upstairs at night. You must be going crazy!"
Or is she?
It's hard to see the truth in "the feeble dawn of gaslight."

“If you need a good laugh (and who doesn’t at tax time!), then Role Players Ensemble’s “Laughing Stock” will fit the bill. . . . Charles Morey’s comedy had me doubled over with laughter as the story of a funky summer stock company trying to survive in a New England barn unfolds. While the plot is simple - perform three shows in repertory and try to break even - the crazy characters make this show a gem.” Curtain Calls by Sally Hogarty, East Bay Times, April 19, 2017
“The production really shines in occasional moments of absolute chaos, such as a catastrophically glitch-ridden performance of “Dracula,” with Rob Evans’ sound design, Christian V. Mejia’s lighting and costumer Lisa Danz’s props all going riotously awry. . . . Ultimately it’s a sentimental ode to the temporary family that forms around a show, bound together by all the havoc, heartbreak and giddy triumph they experience together.” Sam Hurwitt, East Bay Times, April 21, 2017
