Murder and madness come alive once again at Greystone Mansion as Theatre 40 returns to the historic Beverly Hills estate for the 18th season of “The Manor.”

Based on the supposed murder-suicide of Edward Laurence “Ned” Doheny Jr. and his secretary, Hugh Plunkett, and staged within the opulent Tudor-style mansion where the crime actually happened in 1929, this two-act play where the audience follows the cast around the property has developed quite the following.

“It is the longest running play in Los Angeles,” said David Hunt Stafford, the artistic and managing director of Theatre 40. In addition to producing the play, Stafford is also playing the role of James the Valet. “The play is tragic, emotional, historical, powerful, fun; all those things and more.”
