About the Book

“The eloquence of the author’s flowing prose…gives a poetic quality to an already articulate script. There are absolute moments of genuine suspense in the classic Hitchcock vein.” - August Krickel Post & Courier Drama / 4M / 4F / 1 Interior Amityville 1925 is the first published stage play about the infamous house of murder and hauntings in Long Island, New York. The roaring twenties are in full swing. It is late October. The Moynahan family has migrated from Dublin, Ireland to the United States in search of the American dream. John, the father, commissions a beautiful Dutch Colonial home to be constructed at 112 Ocean Avenue. The land, however, is tainted from an ancient curse involving satanic worship, a child’s corpse, and demonic possession. After a mysterious death in the family and subsequent malevolent disturbances, the Moynahan’s dream soon becomes a nightmare of paranormal rage. Suspense builds and spirits collide as they fight to protect hearth and home. Unpredictable twists and turns will keep the audience guessing until the play’s explosive climax. “The play is grounded, smart, and thoroughly entertaining. Quite a remarkable accomplishment deserving of high praise.” - Cindi Boiter Jasper Magazine
