Double Door

September 24 – October 19, 2015

A Play by Elizabeth McFadden

An outstanding success on Broadway, this suspenseful mystery is based on a true story and a real family, recounting the story of Victoria Van Bret, as she rules her family with a maniac’s firmness. The action centers around the marriage of Victoria’s nephew, which does not meet with Victoria’s approval. A battle for power in an old New York family culminates on the verge of murder.
