Ghost Light

Ghost Light

by Frank DiSalvo Jr.

A New Play

May 23 – June 2, 2019
At the Callan Theatre
in the Hartke Theatre Complex
on the campus of Catholic University
3801 Harewood Road NE
Washington, DC 20064

In an old abandoned theater with a checkered past, an eccentric mystic gathers three actors to stage a performance of Hamlet. To make matters even stranger, the mystic informs the cast that the part of Hamlet will be played by an actor who died over a century ago.

A comedy about belief: in what and whom do we believe–or not believe–and why?
