Ghost Story by Lia Romeo

Lydia just wants a one-night stand, so she’s met a guy at a bar and brought him back to her new apartment.  But now things keep getting in the way.  Like the fact that they could hardly be more different – she’s forty, he’s twenty-eight; she’s black, he’s white; she’s a New Yorker and he’s from the Midwest.  And the fact that he’s actually hoping for something more.  And the fact that her new apartment might very well be haunted.  A play about ghosts – both literal and metaphorical – and the ways we try to move forward.

Date: March 5 at 5:00 pm
Venue: Bickford Theatre at the Morris Museum – Show In Map

About New Plays New Jersey

About New Plays New Jersey

New Plays New Jersey is a project designed to support, nurture, and showcase the new play development community in New Jersey, with an eye towards creating a semi-formal network of New Jersey theatres that will coordinate their work on new plays, support each other’s efforts, and promote the idea that New Jersey plays an important role in New Play Development in the United States.

NPNJ consists of a series of five concert readings of new works by New Jersey writers presented by the New Jersey Theatres who support them. These readings will be presented on an annual basis, during the NJ Theatre Alliance Stages Festival with WTNJ producing the event.
