It’s 1832 and wolves roam freely around a dark and wintry England. Left alone after her parents go abroad, Bonnie and her orphaned cousin Sylvia are looking forward to spending time together in their huge, rambling home, Willoughby Chase. But the arrival of the sinister governess Miss Slighcarp and a mysterious stranger on a train leads them into a frightening series of mysteries. Who is Miss Slighcarp, and what does she want? As enemies take over Willoughby Chase, Bonnie and Sylvia must escape their clutches and solve the puzzle for themselves.
The Senior Youth Theatre brings this classic adventure story to life with its trademark sense of humour and ensemble style. But be warned: this story is full of secret passages, desperate chases on frozen rivers, and wolves - lots and lots of wolves.
