About This Show

Ghost City, presented by the National New Writing Company of Wales, Sgript Cymru, is the fourth hit written by Gary Owen and directed by Simon Harris.
After touring all over Great Britain, Ghost City lands at 59E59 Theaters’ BRITS OFF BROADWAY festival for a 2 week engagement.

A dark and sexy live performance underscored by free jazz and an electronic sound score, the show follows the events of 24 lives, over the course of 24 hours, all linked in a way no one could predict.

Set in the contemporary Welsh capital city Cardiff, and stripped of everything but the people, Ghost City could be any city, at any time. Buzzing with color, street talk and edgy humor, the play uses monologues and short scenes to convey a city on the brink — A DJ who cracks up on the air; a substitue teacher outwitted by a nine year old; a love affair in the
West that ends; a love affair in the East that begins; an old man who remembers the bombing of Dresden and forgets — just a few threads that run through this piece.
