"Ghost in the Machine" is a new play by Mike Leon, making its New York premiere at the Theater for the New City, Oct. 13th.
“Ghost in the Machine,” a [relatively] new play by Michael Leon, was first produced in October '10 at Williams College. After months of workshopping and redesigning the play, "Ghost" makes its way to New York this fall with the original cast intact. Telling the story of James, a heartbroken and sleepless young man, his girlfriend Rachel, and his younger brother Eddie as they deal with the consequences of irreversible loss, "Ghost" is an exciting piece of theatre which asks important questions about memory and grief, and how we might deal with those experiences on the stage.
In the last 12 months, we've raised some money, recruited new designers, and rented a [beautiful] theater downtown for two weeks in October. But despite being in pretty good shape, AND all of our actors and designers working for free, putting on a good play in New York is expensive!
So we're reaching out to friends, family, colleagues and people all over the world via Kickstarter because in order to make this production the BEST it can possibly be, we need to raise more money. Your donation(s) would help us pay for sets, costumes, lights, sound, and insurance. Every little bit helps!
