GHOST-WRITER BY MICHAEL HOLLINGER

 

DECEMBER 15, 2018

 

Matinee: Doors open: 3:00; Performance: 3:30

Evening: Doors open: 7:00; Performance: 7:30

 

 

What was the relationship between the novelist Franklin Woolsey and his secretary Myra Babbage?  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. 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?

 

Hollinger’s plot is reportedly based on the relationship between novelist Henry James and his typist, Theodora Bosanquet

 

“An absorbing tale. GHOST-WRITER works marvelously well—a finely wrought piece of entertainment that does just what it sets out to do.” —Wall Street Journal. “Tantalizing, understated and lovely. This engrossing, old-fashioned play is about the drama of writing—and typing—and creativity and love… [An] extraordinary marriage between fiction and theater.” —Philadelphia Inquirer.
