Ghost of a Chance

By Carol Mullen

Directed by Tara Ayres

“Ghost of a Chance” is a fast-paced comedy with mistaken identities, ghostly possession, and quirky characters. Love, lust and laughs ensue when six women and a ghost are snowed in at a historic B&B during a freak Halloween snowstorm. This is the world premiere of a play written for StageQ by a playwright who has been a favorite each year during "Queer Shorts."
