GHOST LIGHT

Inhabited by a broad ensemble cast of quirky, idiosyncratic and lovable theatrical personalities, Ghost Light is a dark comedy about a colorful traveling Shakespearean troupe who live and breathe the theatre and are consequently prey to its elaborate and ridiculous superstitions. On the road with their latest production of Macbeth, er… The Scottish Play, a pompous and disgruntled actor shouts the forbidden name “Macbeth” on stage, and unwittingly unleashes the play’s famous curse.  As the haunting takes hold everything from the actors’ performances to the costumes to the sets gradually become more polished, more sophisticated… more magnificent only to have it all come crashing down as the witches’ curse erupts and overwhelms the play to deliciously bloody affect.  All’s well that ends well… but not for everyone!
