Canterville Ghost at Shakespeare & Company

Ighost-poster-300nternationally celebrated director Irina Brook and her company of talented Shakespeare & Company artists have freely adapted Oscar Wilde’s story about a very American family that blusters its way into a haunted English manor, thoroughly annoying the stuffy old ghost who can’t seem to scare them a whit. In this roaringly original adaptation, Sir Simon the Canterville Ghost is re-imagined as an over-the-hill illusionist reliving his glory days in the 1940’s. Beneath the outrageous veneer of Wilde’s achingly funny story is a depth of emotion, as the old ghost’s long-delayed salvation rests upon a family’s ability to trust, and a young girl’s desire to believe.

This show runs from now through November 9th and tickets can be purchased by e-mailing, going to their website and buying on-line, or calling 413-637-1199.
