Veronica's Room by Ira Levin
Directed by Mark Davies

Performances: Tuesday 8th - Saturday 12th January 2008, Bell Theatre

"Like being trapped in someone else's nightmare,” described a theatre critic about Veronica’s Room, a play by Ira Levin (Deathtrap, Rosemary’s Baby and The Stepford Wives).

Susan Kerner, a young student and Larry Eastwood, a young lawyer she's just met, have been enticed to the Brabissant mansion by the Mackeys, a charming, elderly Irish couple who are struck by Susan's strong resemblance to Veronica Brabissant, long dead daughter of the family for whom they work. They view Veronica's picture in her room, untouched by time. Susan is induced to impersonate Veronica to solace the only living Brabissant, her addled sister living in the past and believing Veronica is alive and angry with her.

But once dressed in Veronica's clothes, Susan finds herself locked in the role and locked in Veronica's room. Or is she Veronica, in 1935, pretending to be an imaginary Susan?
