Uncle Oscar's Experiment : The 10th Anniversary Production
Felicity Luckless is cursed... or so they say. Everywhere she goes, she brings death... or so they believe. Felicity is placed in the care of medical maverick Dr. Oscar Smitthison-Burke and his strange manservant Gregory. The doctor is convinced there is a cure for Felicity's malchance energies and will not rest until it is found. But things start breaking, bloody procedures are performed, angels start hovering, and Gregory is forced to choose between his master and his calamitous new love.
