The Creature in the Crawlspace was first produced under the direction of Richard Booth at Little Theatre on the Bay in October 1981.

The location is the Clerval Estate, high on an ocean cliff.  A thunderstorm is brewing.  The Clerical sisters arrive out of the dark night and Mr. Weirdly, the caretaker, welcomes them to the home of their deceased brother.  Moans and groans keep coming from somewhere within the aging house.

A classic Halloween story with thrills, mystery and even a moral.

Together, Princeton and his new-found friends struggle to find jobs, dates and their ever-elusive purpose in life.
