Michael Hollinger’s Ghost-Writer — April 5 through 28, 2019
Directed by Laura Giannarelli
(Running time about 90 minutes with no intermission)
In this haunting love story set in New York in 1919, novelist Franklin Woolsey (Steve LaRocque) dies mid-sentence, but his typist, Myra (Carol Spring), continues to take dictation. Attacked by skeptics, the press, and Woolsey’s jealous widow (Stephanie Mumford), Myra sets out to prove she is more than just an artful forger. Is she trying to steal Woolsey’s legacy now that she cannot have his love, or might she truly possess a gift the world can’t understand?
Be sure to join the director and cast for a special talk back with the playwright, Michael Hollinger, on Sunday, April 14!
Ghost-Writer will be directed by Laura Giannarelli, a founding member of the highly acclaimed Washington Stage Guild. Previously at QTC, Laura directed Faith Healer and A Lesson from Aloes.
