THE NECKLACE

Genre: Drama
directed by Anne Kauffman and Melissa Kievman, music by Peter Gordon

THE NECKLACE is a drama set in a grand, decaying house on the edge of a moor. It is a house of endless rooms and hidden passageways: of basements, attics, and secret stairways. A house that is antiquated but equipped with up-to the minute technology – wireless modems on moss covered desks. In this house of multiple realities - often hidden from one another - live a group of people whose identities and relationships unfold in surprising ways in each new episode. The house is a hub, a crossroads, and a battleground in a struggle for survival between generations; between old ways of doing business and the new global economics.

Each episode will be a self-contained theater piece that can be appreciated by itself but each will also end in a "cliff-hanger". The four writers are working in the tradition of Dickens' serial novels, or television serials, but wish to combine the seductiveness of the form with the vividness, immediacy, and theatricality of live theater.
