This laugh-oriented, old-fashioned melodrama is based on Wilkie Collins’s classic. This wild, fast and funny story features a disreputable (and hilarious) villain who dispatches his adversaries with nefarious ease and even seals his wife in a madhouse to steal her fortune! He battles a wicked countess in an uproarious fight scene and engineers mock funerals but he’s terrified of the mysterious “woman in white” who escaped from the asylum to seek him out. Cheer for the damsel! Throw popcorn and boo at the villain! Don’t miss this delightful play!
