Okay, playing with what you have.  I don't think it's ever a good idea to say it's based on truth.  Some may make a judgement before they even start reading.

 

Synopsis of Hauntings
By Toni Wilson

Three generations of strong, yet emotionally raped and shattered women in the Mirfield family, move through mental abuse and illness in four acts. 

Bette, the matriarch of the family, and her sister, Florence, are both profoundly affected by their mother’s life in the 1940s. Bette gives birth to Janice and Louise, and Louise gives birth to Margo and December.  The abuse Bette suffers early in her life is still evident in the lives of her great-granddaughters, Margo and December.  Will they succeed in breaking the cycle of abuse, and working toward emotional healing, or will the past be too much for them to cope with, effectively sealing their future?

Hantings explores the stories of the Milfield women and their painful lives - lived proudly.  Through the women, we discover how the poison of mental illness and abuse can create a tainted legacy for generations to come, and what things will empower the women enough to fracture the cycle.  

As the story moves from the early 1940s to the present, the characters ages fluctuate - a wonderful challange for an actor. 

Haunting - pain knows no era.
