This is a ghost story, a very scary ghost story
The late Lord Gray has died leaving the estate in debt. The new incumbent has called upon business associates Filde and Nephew to arrange the sales of rare and valuable books in the library. To this end David Filde has arrived at the manor to begin the process. On the first night strange and supernatural events begin to unfold. These events increase in intensity through the following days until the final terrifying climax.
Basically a two hander so both parts have a lot of lines to be learnt.
David Filde, mid 20’s. Central character
Shy bookdealer, nephew of a business associate of Lord/Lady Gray called the manor to catalogue the library. Does he have an ulterior motive? Lots of lines to learn
