Daphne Du Maurier's stage adaptation of her novel was Goth before there was Goth (in the sense we know it, anyway. I'm sure the ancient Romans would beg to differ). It's 12 kinds of creepy, as a young woman marries a rich widower and moves off to his country estate only to find everyone there ensnared in obsession over hubby's late wife. Fear, paranoia, and all sorts of nasty mind tricks ensue. Theatre in the Round is in its mind-boggling 57th season, and continues to churn out nicely crafted community theater (and being in the round is no trick for the audience; after about 10 minutes you get over the sensation that everyone seated across the room is looking at you). Dim the lights and embrace the scary for this one.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: Oct. 16. Continues through Nov. 8, 2009
