Commonweal Theatre's production of Ghost-Writer


By Michael Hollinger

September 7 – November 12, 2017

When famous novelist Franklin Woolsey dies mid-sentence, his secretary, Myra, continues to take dictation, somehow, in this romance-meets-mystery-meets-ghost story. 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? The Philadelphia Inquirer calls Ghost-Writer a “tantalizing, understated and lovely” romance about the power of the written word and the wonder of creativity.
