New Edgecliff Theatre’s annual Sweet Suspense Radio Drama returns with a family friendly radio style adaptation of the Oscar Wilde classic, adapted for the stage by NET’s Playwright-in-Residence, Catie O’Keefe.
This one-night-only event includes the re-creation of an early, 30′s era radio studio, complete with live sound effects. Intermission will feature an assortment of desserts and sweets from some of Cincinnati’s finest bakeries, restaurants and caterers.
Where others have run screaming in terror, the Otis family seems quite comfortable in their new haunted house. After moving to England and into Canterville Chase, this family of Americans finds nothing frightening about the famous Canterville ghost. In fact, his attempt to replenish an old blood stain is nothing but annoying and his efforts to scare the family members usually end in the ghost hiding in fear. It’s not until the young daughter,Virginia, takes an interest in helping the murderous spirit, that the family and the ghost find peace and quiet.
