The Ghost lived in the woods, Minding Her Own Business and definitely Not Haunting Anyone, until one day she saw a Pretty Girl and followed her home. It totally wasn’t even a thing. The Girl was probably not even going to notice.
A comedy about ruining the lives of the people you love.
Written by Savannah Reich, Stupid Ghost is a prickly play that demands a cast capable of finding moments of deadpan wit within an unsettling tale of isolation, stalking and child abuse. It’s a challenge that director Devon Roberts and Vertigo ensemble members meet with the appropriate guts, grace and goofiness, creating a production that is as delightful as it is spooky.
-Bennett Campbell Ferguson, Theatre Vertigo’s Stupid Ghost is an Ingeniuous Supernatural Comedy, Willamette Week.
Charming and laced surprisingly with heart, this witty neo-surrealistic play feeds the audience a dose of humor, with profoundly enlightening considerations to keep in mind.
