A Tomb With a View

by Norman Robbins

January 21st and 22nd, 2017

Just imagine a dark evening in late autumn. Rain and fog restrain the view, you can hardly see a couple of inches far. At the end of the long driveway that you are passing, a stately mansion, surrounded by a huge, old garden, is rising. It occurs to you quite soon that this pleasant garden with its rosebushes and marigolds holds a couple of dark secrets. The garden belongs to Monument House, which is the residence of the venerable Tomb family. After weeks of waiting, the time has come: The will of Septimus Tomb, the deceased head of the family, is to be read out. But to the surprise of the attendees, the executor of the will states that there is another, unknown heir. Shortly afterwards, a second case of death occurs…

“A Tomb with a View,” written in the 1970s by Norman Robbins, is Actors Nausea’s 26th play.
