In the Spirit

Book By: Matthew Carlin
Play #: 8028
Pages: 42 pgs
Cast: 3 m, 4 w

In this hour-long play, timid and somewhat nerdy Arthur Miller (no relation to the playwright) has inherited a century-old mansion from a distant cousin. On arrival he finds more than he bargained for - the ghosts of three relatives who died there more than 70 years ago, and the ghost of their killer, the schizophrenic Uncle George. But these ghosts are not content to rattle chains. They enjoy "life" by re-enacting their deaths, sometimes two or three times a night, each time funnier, faster, and more melodramatically than the last! As they explain to Arthur, they don't want to "move on" when they're having so much fun right where they are. Arthur is drawn into their game, utterly charmed, so much so that when a high-pressure medium with connections at the bank threatens to repossess the house and the spirits in it, Arthur bravely rises to the challenge. One living room set.
