Suspense Thrillers
Five of the best on-stage thrillers. Unlike mysteries in which the audience searches for clues to figure out “whodunit,” thrillers let viewers know who the bad guys are in advance. Then, the audience spends the rest of the play on the edge of their proverbial seats, who will win: the evil doer or the innocent victim?

Seriously Spooky Scripts
Most Halloween productions are playful spoofs of worn out movie monsters. Although campy shows are a blast, there is nothing quite like getting creeped out by a diabolically bone-chilling play. It is an immense challenge for a playwright to generate true fear within the audience. These monstrous masterpieces rise to the occasion.
