The Story So Far[]

Lola walked out the doors of Arkham Asylum into a bright, sunny day. It had been the right move, checking herself into the sanitarium to recuperate after her last show. She still didn't like to think about that play, of course—all that strange chanting and those awful masks; they still appeared sometimes in her nightmares.

She glanced down again at the newspaper clipping in her hand. "Famous Director Hangs Himself!" She had decided to check out of the asylum when she had seen it and realized that there was something more to that play than just her own wild imaginings.

Subtly checking once more to make sure her derringer was still safely hidden, Lola strode back out onto center stage for what could be her final starring role.[1]

Lola has performed to sold-out houses worldwide, but no play has been as haunting or as odd as The King in Yellow. Even during rehearsals, everything about it brought calamity and dread. When her co-star, Miriam, was found floating dead in the Seine, she decided she'd had enough, and penned a letter to the director explaining that her next performance would be her last. Now she heads home to Arkham for one final show, hoping she can finally be rid of this dreadful play.[2]
