THE CANTERVIILLE GHOST at Beechmont Players
(A play by Marisha Chamberlain, based on the story by Oscar Wilde)
Directed by Steve Phelan
Produced by Cathy Roesener
A no-nonsense American family buys a 500-year-old mansion in rural England, scoffing at warnings of a fierce resident ghost. The spirited (and skeptical) Americans – Mother, Father, young Virginia, and her mischievous little twin brothers – find their match in the equally spirited and clever ghost, who is determined to scare them away. Will they go, or will the ghost?
