‘Hide and Seek’ is good, old-fashioned thriller
CARMEL — Richard and Jennifer Crawford have moved from the city to an old farmhouse to await the birth of their first child. Richard still commutes each day, while Jennifer stays home supervising the handyman and cook who work for them. At first it is the slow pace of restoration that nags them, but a general sense of unease builds as the old house seems to be resisting their intrusion. The lights fail, the plumbing malfunctions, a neighbor stops by with an odd gift (a prayer book for the burial of the dead), but it is the silent little girl whom Jennifer claims she has seen swinging in the backyard who brings on the chilling climax of the play. “Hide and Seek” plays through Oct. 29 at the Carmel Community Playhouse, 14229 Clay Terrace Blvd. Visit carmelplayers.org for show times and ticket prices.
