Coming soon: In Tandem Theatre's "The Nightmare Room"

There aren't many suspense and mystery writers better than Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and seeking a thriller to start its 15th season, In Tandem Theatre has turned to the master.

The play is "The Nightmare Room," adapted from the short story of the same name by highly regarded English playwright John Goodrum, who has built a career creating mysterious plays full of terror and suspense.

"The Nightmare Room" is about two women, best friends since childhood, who fall for the same man, a dashing former movie star. The play is dark and twisted and builds slowly to a stunning climax.

In Tandem is the baby of Chris and Jane Flieller, who have nurtured its steady growth while producing some memorable performances. They are widely known for their annual Cudahy Caroler Christmas, a hilarious romp through the holiday season.

"The Nightmare Room" features one of Milwaukee's favorite young actors, Libby Amato, who has worked with many groups around town. She has a delicate fawning beauty that brings wonderful sensibility to any role she plays. She will be joined in "The Nighmare Room" by Mary C. McLellan.

Tickets are available at the Tenth Street Theatre box office at (414) 271-1371.
