The Manor- Murder and Madness at Greystone depicts momentous changes in the fortunes of the fabulously wealthy MacAlister Family (fictional surrogates of the oil-rich Doheny Family). Family patriarch and mining tycoon Charles makes an illegal if well-intentioned loan to Senator Alfred Winston (a stand-in for Secretary of the Interior Albert Fall). Both men face imminent disgrace and worse in the oncoming Teapot Dome bribery scandal, which will engulf the Warren Harding administration. A scion of the MacAlister family faces violent death. Who is to blame?

"This is the second time I've seen The Manor: Murder and Madness at Greystone and it is still an absolutely thrilling, beautifully done play that takes place at the magnificent Greystone Manor in Beverly Hills. The play is now in its sixteenth year has surpassed its 200th performance in 2014 and it's obvious why."

"The cast and crew effortlessly guide the audience through the rooms and into the plot's machinations. It's not as involving or sensational an experience as Tamara was decades ago, but The Manor is an interesting exploration of a local landmark and scandal."
