Ghost Light Now & Then

by Barbara Kahn

directed by Robert Gonzales Jr.

Danielle Aziza, Micha Lazare 

During an inexplicable seismic event in 2017, a lesbian couple is flung through a window into the early twentieth century Greenwich Village Theater, demolished in 1930. Inspired by “Alice in Wonderland” and “The Wizard of Oz,” the play follows their journey home. Wandering through remnants of scenery, they encounter ghosts that haunt the site of the theater. Characters and snatches of dialogue from productions of the past are woven into this contemporary play. The women discover that issues and conflicts—homophobia, racism and anti-Semitism--haven’t changed in a century, and take the lessons they learn back to the present.
