WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
As rich in imagery as it is unsettling in tone, afterlife: a ghost story explores the fragility of the human psyche and the lingering effects of great loss framed by a chilling tale. An impending storm forces troubled couple, Connor and Danielle, to return to their beachfront home for the first time since they lost their son. While they reluctantly attempt to secure their house and also try to pick up the pieces of their fractured lives, they are welcomed by dead fishes littering the shore, enormous black birds that appear to be waiting and watching, and a familiar voice whispering from the waves…calling to them. When the storm hits sooner than expected, they are thrust into another dimension, where they must confront their tragedy and learn how to cope with the pain of remembering before they are swept away forever. This hauntingly beautiful play asks the question: What do you do when the hardest part of living is remembering?
