Phoenix Theatre - Ghost Writer
Phoenix Theatre brings the popular black comedy/whodunit Ghost Writer to The Rose Centre from 5 – 14 September. Written by David Tristram and directed by Raewyn Nevin, Ghost Writer is loosely based on Hamlet - but with mischievous shades of Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit.
The tale unfolds in the run-down bedsit of drunken playwright Edward on the anniversary of his wife Ruby's death. Ruby died from an overdose of booze and drugs after the last-night party of a local production of Hamlet. When Ruby's ghost visits Edward, she reveals that it was murder, not suicide that killed her. She declares the killer must be caught or she is doomed to roam in limbo for eternity. This genuine 'ghost writer' then helps her husband create a play designed to flush out the murderer from a shortlist of suspects at the party.
The characters of Ghost Writer are a colourful collection of ‘theatre-types’ who can't get along, making for conversations full of barbed comments, vitriolic one-liners and liberal quotations from Shakespeare. Adding further fun in this production is radio personality Alison Leonard (The Breeze, Dancing WithThe Stars, Good Morning), who is making her return to the stage as a 'drama queen'
- and hot suspect:
