The Bone House Nov 3 - Nov 11, 2017  
The Greenhouse Theater Center The Bone House
 
Greenhouse Theater Center presents The Bone House. Playwright Marty Chan's harrowing, hour-long play takes the form of a mock lecture by an author named Eugene Crowley, whose latest book explores the inner life of serial killers. The lecture starts off charmingly enough, given the topic, with a dry and detached, almost historical roundup of prominent murderers and their heinous methods. But then, Crowley increasingly turns his attention to the members of the audience -- and it becomes clear that he has much more on his mind than lecturing. If you think you can handle it, The Bone House is an ominous night of creepy drama.
