College student Susan and her date Larry find themselves invited to the Brabissant mansion outside of Boston by its elderly caretakers. They have asked Susan to impersonate the long-dead Veronica Brabissant in order to solace the family's only remaining member, Cecilia. She is dying of cancer and, believing Veronica is still alive, wants to make up a decade-old quarrel before it's too late.
Once Susan is dressed in Veronica's clothes, the role-playing begins in earnest. However, things are not always as they seem, and th plot twists in Vernonica's Room will delight and shock the audience.
