About the Play:

A-Haunting We Will Go is a full-length mystery-comedy by Tim Kelly. A famous TV producer plans to stay a night alone in a supposedly haunted hotel to fulfill a childhood dream. During her stay, a strange assortment of uninvited guests arrive to add to the spirit manifestations and the murderous intrigue. There's no such thing as a ghost. Or is there? A Haunting We Will Go will get the audience asking that same question.

A-Haunting We Will Go is a delightful murder mystery farce with lots of crazy characters and twists and turns your audience won't see coming. Glamorous, young television producer Norma Corwin made a childhood vow that once in her life she would spend a night alone in The Inn of the Three Sisters, an eerie and forbidding hotel made famous for the sisters' unresolved murder, horrifying spirit manifestations and murderous intrigue. When she learns the inn is to be dynamited to make way for a new highway, she decides the time is now (or never) and the "fun" begins. Bumps, strange noises, and an assortment of uninvited "guests" arrive to add more mystery: ESP expert Madame Lugosi; a young serviceman who says he's lost his way; a doomed young woman who comes to warn Norma that she's in great danger; and, yes, the ghosts of the three young sisters who, with the villainous handyman Flint, are cursed to relive the ghastly murder each night. As events unfold, it becomes doubtful that Norma and the others will survive the night.

A-Haunting We Will Go is a modern mystery-comedy suited to any school, community, or fringe theatre group searching for a play that has no problems in terms of production.
