We can't wait to offer this immersive experience!"
In the first act of Lewiston, roadside fireworks vendor, Alice, is weighing whether to sell the last of her inherited Idaho land to a real estate developer. She is confronted by her long-estranged granddaughter, Marnie, who has left a lucrative Seattle job to stake a claim for her family’s legacy. In the second act of Clarkson, two young men work the night shift at Costco. Jake is fleeing the East Coast as it comes to grasp the hard reality of testing positive for Juvenile Onset Huntington’s disease (JHD) while Chris maintains a tenuous connection to his mother, who struggles with drug use.
Mature themes, adult situations, and a character’s challenges with a life-threatening disease are the center of the GhostLight production which will include a related discussion with representatives from the Huntington Disease Society of America (HDSA) who will participate in a special post-show talkback Q&A session on Thursday, July 21st.
