Night of the Orchid is a contemporary Gothic drama of desire and death, and of love and vengeance beyond the grave, from acclaimed playwright Marty Ross. Madeleine Loughran has fled her wedding, seeking shelter with her beloved Great Aunt at her house in the snowbound Scottish countryside. In the house’s ruined glasshouse, the blossoming of a single living flower is the first sign of a passion that will strip bare the secret history of a house and its inhabitants.
