A family holiday is disrupted by the mysterious disappearance of their little girl, Mary Rose. Reunited with her family but with no memory of what transpired, the riddle of what happened haunts the family for years to come, sparking off a dark adventure into love, loss, ghosts, and the living. Adapted from the acclaimed play by JM Barrie (author of Peter Pan) The Disappearance of Mary Rosemary is an old-fashioned, spine-tingling tale of hauntingly contemporary ideas.

When Mary Rose, as a young woman, receives a proposal of marriage, the events from her past are cast up and the mystery of her childhood disappearance begins to take hold once again. Determined to unravel the puzzle, her military husband brings her back to the ill-fated isle and unforeseen forces. First performed in 1920, this deliciously haunting play became a major obsession and inspiration for Alfred Hitchcock. International award-winning playwright Ian Walker re-imagines this classic tale against a backdrop of Louisiana Bayous, Voodoo, and a world as beautiful as it is terrifying.

"Delicious thrills," writes TheatreStorm

"The most unusual ghost story of the season," says The San Francisco Bay Guardian
