October Theatre plays? Love your ideas!

The photo above is from a play called 'A tomb with a view', October 2010. I am in the middle in white ;)
Hi everyone!
I have just returned from my local theatre company reading of our next play for June. It has been cast and although I am not in the play this time, there is talk to the next play we produce in October. Usually we have a company rule....... which is none one can direct a play unless you have directed a small 'One Act Play' that gave you experience. This rule has been changed this year due to the usual people not wanting to direct. Sooooo it is open to anyone! Of course we will have help from those who have directed!

I am writing this Blog post to ask for your Ideas and help and to have a little fun too! The play is in October and I would LOVE to direct my first play in the month of Halloween, and choose a play that suits the month!!

I was wondering if any of you had been to see, or know of any atmospheric plays that you think would suit the spooky month of Halloween? Can be ghost inspired,or murder mysteries, I would love to hear of any adaptions of great books you may have heard of!

Directing a play is something I would love to do. and it would be great to put forward a play to my group! SO I though why not ask my great blogging friends and see what books/plays etc you may know of or have seen...........

I know the 'Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of death' is also a script.how fantastic would that be, a cozy play!!!

Thank you for any help. look forward to hearing your favourite plays or movies as sometimes they are scripts too!
Talk soon Priscilla xxx
