Giving Up The Ghost

Sam Carbery

March 30


The Brick Presents
Giving Up The Ghost
by Sam Carbery
March 30 & 31, April 1 & 2 at 8pm

This just in: Hades, king of the dead, has announced her retirement — she is closing the Underworld — and it is up to the rest of the gods to change her mind.

Giving Up the Ghost is an exploration of grief, friendship, and the act of remembering. What do we owe our ghosts, our friends, and ourselves? What follows is a train wreck tragicomedy about life, death, the pursuit of happiness, and what it means (to let go).
