Last Saturday I attended I’ll Be Back Before Midnight, written by Peter Colley and directed by Nina Reynolds put on by the Goderich Little Theatre at the Livery in Goderich. I wasn’t really sure what to expect. I was told it was party comedy, part thriller. Well I was not disappointed. The show was filled with laughs, scares, creepy sounds and very unique characters.

The show opens with Greg and Jan Sanderson entering the stage, which is set as an old country house. Shortly after they settle in, the owner of the house they are renting stops by. His name is George Willowby. He has a country charm and wacky personality and is portrayed perfectly by Floyd Herman. Jan already seems on edge and George tells her all about how the house is haunted by the ghost of a woman who was killed in the house years before.

Greg then enters and announces that his sister Laura will be dropping by for a visit. Apparently the two ladies do not get along as this almost throws Jan over the edge. Unfortunately for Jan, Laura is already on her way, so the trip can’t be cancelled. Laura, played by Florence Stalenhoef, is quite the lady. Her bold and provocative character traits really overwhelm Jan. To make things worse, Greg who seems like a shy and cautious guy, is stuck in the middle of the two women.

I really don’t want to tell any of you more about the show, as I don’t want to give away any of the surprising and scary moments. Just be ready to laugh and jump in your seat! There are still three shows left and a few tickets for each show. So if you are interested in attending here are the details:
