"My husband's in love with a dead girl"...
Rosa Raine is a ghost story about a married man haunted by the memory of a brief affair twenty years in the past. The memories are fraught with tragic secrets that tear his marriage apart and ask profound questions about life, love, infidelity and forgiveness. The play offers a remarkable collaboration between the writer, director, and cast.
