About This Show

Oscar Clifton prefers to live his memories rather than his life. But when his estranged grandson comes calling after eighteen years, Oscar must face a very different version of his past. Together, what future can they make? This poetic family drama dances from the hilarious innocence of a childhood crush to the heartbreak of a ruined marriage. As intricate as a chess game, as mouthwatering as a slice of sweet potato pie, as luminous as a full summer moon, dance of the holy ghosts marks the emergence of playwright Marcus Gardley as a unique new voice in the American theater.
