Things get creepy at Theatre Knoxville

Suzanne CadaDowntown, Our Town Arts

It’s the last weekend (and the most perfect one) to catch Theatre Knoxville’s production of “The Haunting of Hill House.” The play is F. Andrew Leslie’s adaptation of Shirley Jackson’s novel of the same name and is directed by Sarah Campbell and Dennis Hart.

A chilling and mystifying study in mounting terror in which a small group of “psychically receptive” people are brought together in Hill House, a brooding, mid-Victorian mansion known as a place of evil and “contained ill will.”

Led by the learned Dr. Montague, who is conducting research in supernatural phenomena, the visitors have come to probe the secrets of the old house and to draw forth the mysterious powers that it is alleged to possess — powers which have brought madness and death to those who have lived therein in the past.

Tickets are $20. The final shows run Friday Oct. 29 – Sunday Oct. 31, with 8 p.m. shows on Friday and Saturday and a 3 p.m. show on Sunday. For more information or to purchase tickets go here. Masks are required regardless of vaccination status. Theatre Knoxville is located 800 S. Central Street, 37902.
