Ghost-WriterBy Michael Hollinger
A mysterious tale of artistic creation and forbidden love. In early 20th century New York, novelist Franklin Woolsey dictates his latest book to his young secretary. As they work they form a romantic and creative bond. Or do they?
When their relationship is called into question, the devoted secretary must defend the truth as she sees it. A smart new play about the relationship between art and its creator.
A strong and involving performance
