GHOST writer

by David Tristram

14 - 18 May 2013

Ruby Penfold, a talented but tempestuous actress is discovered dead in bed, after a last-night party following her star turn as Ophelia in Hamlet, from a lethal cocktail of naughty pills and booze. Suicide? Misadventure? Or something worse?
A year later, her playwright husband Edward, still deep in mourning, has moved into the attic room of one of his oldest actor friends, Alex. Alex wants him to move on. But Ruby has other ideas – she wants Edward to find out which of her co-stars murdered her. Will Edward stay sober enough to play his part? Will the murderer be unmasked? Will Ruby get her revenge? Confusion, slapstick humour, supernatural intervention and many pint glasses of gin later, you may find out…
