The House

The House

by Lindsay Price

Do ghosts make a house haunted, or are houses evil to begin with? Three teens enter a haunted house prepared to answer this question. They are ready to search the house top to bottom, share stories, and document what they see. But what if what they find isn’t anything they’ve prepared themselves for?

Did that door just creak open on its own? Who’s walking upstairs? Was that a scream? Only the Chosen Ones know… and they’re watching you…

Excellent class project or large cast production. Doubling possible. Roles for all levels. So much for your technical students to dive into!

There is an option to make this long one act play into a two act play.
