“As close to perfection as contemporary playwriting gets.” —New York Times
Gorgeous and haunting, this drama uses richly drawn characters and powerful storytelling to weave a tale of love, loss and faith. A recently bereaved widower seeks help from a therapist when he begins seeing his wife’s ghost, but the therapist, a former priest, struggles with problems of his own.
By Conor McPherson (The Weir, The Lime Tree Bower, Shining City)
Directed by Joy Zinoman
Featuring Donald Carrier, Chris Genebach, Edward Gero and Laoisa Sexton
