"This thesis examines the artistic process of 'Wheaton Hall,' a horror stage play with an all-female cast. It explores the author’s influences and writing process, as well as the work’s niche within the canon and marketplace as a piece that utilizes female performers and combines a genre utilized largely in cinema with the theatrical form."
Includes the author's original script for "Wheaton Hall," a horror play set in 1898 in Bedfordshire, England, in which sisters invite their father's late wife to visit, unaware that she brings "a sinister force that threatens the entire family."
