Paul Morella and Susan Lynskey in Ghost-Writer at MetroStage Christopher Banks
Performance Dates

Novelist Franklin Woolsey dies mid-sentence, but his typist (think Henry James and his typist in the early twentieth century) 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.

“a love story of the utmost restraint, an unbiased portrayal of a lover’s triangle, a portrait of a seamless working partnership and a meditation on the act of creation.” Palm Beach Daily News

SPECIAL ADDED SHOW: Wed, June 5 @ 8pm is a PayWhatYouCan ($10 min, cash only, at door) with all proceeds benefiting theatreWashington's Taking Care of Our Own initiative.
