An original radio play written by Aileen Brand. Directed by Patrick Allwood. Characters: Thief one: Thom Wescott, Thief two: Randy Brogden, Father: George Rithaler, Mother: Julia Body, Daughter: Karen Wilson, Son: Madeleine Genn, Ghost: Patrick Allwood. This original radio play was inspired by a visit to a new antique shop where Aileen saw a cookie jar in the shape of a sheep which she thought rather strange. This morphed in an even stranger fashion in her mind into a castle and further to that a haunted one. That’s how some plays get written.
