Ghost-Writer

by Michael Hollinger, Directed by Yvonne Perry

April 3-5, 2020

Novelist Franklin Woolsey dies mid-sentence, but his secretary Myra continues to take dictation. Attacked by skeptics, the press and Woolsey's jealous widow, Myra sets out to prove she is more than just an artful forger. Reportedly based on the relationship between Henry James and his typist, Theodora Bosanquet, Ghost-Writer does not provide answers to its many ambiguities, but instead teases us with the possibilities. It is a tender treatise on unspoken affection, the writing process, what we remember and what we wish were so.
