Ghost Writer

Written by David Tristram / Directed by Bruce Cannell

14 – 24 September 2022

Edward is a promising young playwright and husband of the talented but tempestuous actress Ruby. Tragically, Ruby is found dead in bed: an overdose of naughty pills and booze. A year later, Edward remains deeply affected and has moved into the attic room of one of his oldest actor friends, Alex, who is gay. We join the story on the first anniversary of the death of Ruby Pinfold. May she rest in peace.
