'Murder has took this chamber with full hands And will ne'er out as long as the house stands.' A Yorkshire Tragedy, Act I, Sc. v In 1605, Sir Walter Calverley's murderous rampage leaves a family shattered. The killer suffers a torturous execution... but is it truly the end? A noble Yorkshire house stands forever tarnished by blood and possessed by anguished spirits. Some crimes are so horrific, they reverberate through the centuries. As an unhappy modern couple vacation in the guesthouse at Calverley Old Hall, playwright Clara, and her scholar husband, Scott, unwittingly awaken a dark history. Clara is trapped and forced back in time to bear witness to a family's bloody saga. Overtaken by the malevolent echoes, Scott is pushed over the edge from possessive husband to wholly possessed...

Inspired by a true-life drama in Shakespeare's day, this is itself a play within a play: a supernatural thriller with a historical core. Only one player can survive.
