cane hill | the strange case of the mysterious basement

We forced our way around the recalcitrant door and found ourselves in a large, dark featureless room. Like most of Cane Hill, mouldy old furniture remained with a large table along the length of the room, chairs along the other and coat hooks above.

Wed found a changing room, a room where patients, staff and visitors could prepare before appearing on the stage. Id long assumed the changing room had been lost in the fire, presuming it was located under the former stage itself. But I didnt expect it to be a subterranean room situated under the corridor network.
