Loved it! The script had wonderful language with music in it. The actors were superb. Set very clever. This was my first experience at Metro Stage; look forward to coming back next season.

Not as good as the publicity would lead one to believe - there's little mystery here. It's entertaining enough, but not up to Metro Stage's usual caliber. We were disappointed.

Entertaining but more of a monologe than a play. Still worthwhile at the Goldstar price but not up to the usual MetroStage standard.

Description

*Ghost-Writer 

*By Michael Hollinger 

Directed by John Vreeke

Novelist Franklin Woolsey dies mid-sentence, but his typist continues to take dictation, causing great consternation from his wife, his publisher and the general public. Where are these words coming from?

A drama about the writing process, creativity and love — with a little punctuation thrown in for good measure. 

Featuring Susan Lynskey, Helen Hedman and Paul Morella.
