Although Mr & Mrs Woolsey make brief sporadic appearances, this is essentially a monologue by Myra, a young lady who focuses first her laser intelligence, then her... continued

Excellent play, cast, staging - a "couldn't-be-better" ensemble (including typewriter!). Mystery, bitterness, humor well-mixed for a very enjoyable experience for the theater-goer.

I wasn't familiar with this play, nor had I read the reviews. So I was delighted to discover how entertaining it is. The cast is excellent, but I have to single out Susan Lynskey, who is superb! Full stop.

Lovely play for Spring. Tightly written--every line is meaningful. It will not leave you untouched. Wonderfully acted. Well worth the time and price.

What a great show, a tour de force for Susan Lynsky. It's thrilling to have this great company right here in Old Town. With quality like this, who needs New York?

I really enjoyed this show. I thought Susan Lynskey was fantastic. I have seen her in other plays and she is a superb actress. I was expecting the play to be a more typical mystery, but this almost 1 woman show certainly held my interest.

Amazing performance by Susan Lynskey and the other two cast members. Top notch theater. Metro Stage is charming and intimate. Parking is free. Wonderful experience.

Ghost-Writer is a most unusual theatrical experience with an award-winning cast that includes Susan Lynsky giving a brilliant performance. We urge all in the DC area to see this show before it closes on June 2.

Sterling performances by all. Most impressive. Well worth seeing.
p.s. I would love it if this theater received a huge donation to improve the uncomfortable seating, however. ;-)

The show was very well done, lead actress was surely competent, but the theater was very warm which distracted from the pleasure of the experience.
