Virtual Event, Virtual Event, MD 21044

Rep Stage, the professional regional theatre in residence at Howard Community College (HCC), presents the world premiere of “Ghost/Writer,” a radio play by Dane Figueroa Edidi, directed by Danielle A. Drakes. Family secrets spanning decades unravel as history and fiction collide. In 1920 just outside of Tulsa, Patrick, an Irish immigrant, seeks out the services of Ms. Ruby, a mysterious Black woman from Baltimore, known to help exorcise ghosts from her clients, but the price she is asking may be too high. Meanwhile, in 2019, Charles Ross hires infamous ghost writer Rebecca Warren to help him through his writer's block, but what she invokes could be his salvation or undoing. Edidi's new play examines the intersections of race and gender inviting us to explore the role of love, justice and joy in a world where the ghosts of the past have yet to be laid to rest. Ticket holders may view/listen to “Ghost/Writer” at their convenience from May 13 -May 23, 2021. A single ticket is $15; a household ticket is $25.
