RavensCliffe, Island of Games by Thom Bennett
During a tropical storm in the summer of 1939, light keeper Mark Gordon falls to his death from atop the RavensCliffe lighthouse. Most people believed that his fall was due to the gale force winds that were lashing the isolated island. Some disagreed, claiming that the cause of his death was not of this world, but rather a supernatural act of retribution. Regardless, the lighthouse was decommissioned soon after the incident, and Gordon's widow and two children turned the island into a thriving summer resort. RavensCliffe became the home of a world-class training facility for aspiring tennis players and competition boaters.
Now, twenty years later, Diane Wentworth and her teenage daughter, Emma, have come to RavensCliffe Resort for a week of tennis lessons and relaxation. However, the lighthouse, where they are staying, appears to be haunted and entrenched in a mystery so frightening they may not leave the resort alive. Like the spiral stairs inside the lighthouse, the twists and turns of the plot will take audiences on an edge-of-the-seat journey, where no one in the cast is what s/he appears to be, and where some of the players will not survive to the final curtain.
RavensCliffe, Island of Games is a modern, Gothic thriller of revenge and family conflict. It is performed in two acts, is played out on a single set, features a cast of six actors (4F, 2M), and runs approximately 90 minutes plus intermission.
