GHOSTIE was part of a season of six plays entitled ‘Ghost Stories’ at the Old Fitzroy Theatre, November/December 2009
A short play that explores the idea of hauntings and malevolence.
“The tension was ratcheted up several notches by Verity Laughton’s intriguing Ghostie, in which two young men creep around a possibly haunted house in the hopes of getting scared, horny or both. It is a tale built on lies, uncertainty and the power of suggestion, with a prevailing ambiguity that leaves all the things that go bump in the night deliciously unresolved as to their supernatural or psychological causes. Blessed with Laughton’s fine dialogue, Jamie Irvine and Walker make for a very believable, engaging duo.”
