Intrigue and plot twists inhabit Veronica’s Room

Veronica’s Room begins in 1973, with an elderly couple who are so amazed that Susan looks exactly like long dead Veronica.

Veronica’s Room begins in 1973, with an elderly couple who are so amazed that Susan looks exactly like long dead Veronica.

When they ask her to come home and pretend to be Veronica to make a dying old woman happy, it seems like such a small thing to ask.

But suddenly, things aren’t going the way Susan expected. As a child, Susan was told by her mother, not to talk to strangers. Susan should have listened.

Veronica’s Room is a totally absorbing spider’s web entwining fantasy and reality. It’s like being trapped in someone else’s nightmare . . . with a jarring and surprising climax.

Ira Levin, author of Veronica’s Room was the Stephen King of the 60’s and 70’s. Most of his major works have been made into movies including The Boy’s From Brazil, Deathtrap, and The Stepford Wives. Perhaps his most memorable was Rosemary’s Baby, directed by Roman Polanski, starring Mia Farrow, John Cassavettes, and Ruth Gordon, who won Best Supporting Actress the year it was released.

Veronica’s Room is no exception when it comes to intrigue and plot twists.

River City Players will be performing ‘Veronica’s Room’ beginning May 12th. The show runs for 2 weeks and tickets can be purchased at the Tidemark Theatre by calling 250 287 PINK. There is also a matinee on Sunday, May 15.

The following week, they also will be performing at the 2011 North Island Zone Drama festival in Port Alberni on Friday, May 27.

This yearly festival features a different production each night from Sunday to Friday, culminating in an Awards Banquet on Saturday May 28.
