Different Stages continues its 2012-2013 season with Emlyn William’s classic mystery Night Must Fall. In a bungalow in a forest in Essex lives Mrs. Bramson, a fussy hypochondriac. She pays her niece Olivia a small salary to act as her companion and the household also includes her cook, Mrs. Terence, and her maid Dora.

When Dora gets pregnant, Mrs. Bramson is determined to get the boyfriend to marry her. At the same time, a woman disappears from a nearby hotel. The police begin investigations and, when Dora brings home her boyfriend Dan, Olivia immediately notices that his behavior is not quite normal. He is perpetually putting on an act and soon he worms his way into the affections of Mrs. Bramson, leaves his job as pageboy at the hotel and moves in. Then the woman’s body is found – headless.....

Directed by Norman Blumensaadt, Night Must Fall features Ben McLemore as Dan, Mary Kennelly as Mrs. Bramson and Bethany Harbaugh as Olivia. The cook is Played by Paula Gilbert and the maid by Laura Artesi . Daniel Norton plays the police inspector and Jonathon Urso plays Olivia’s boyfriend
