The 2017-2018 New Play Festival Winner

In the 2017-2018 New Play Festival Winner "Poltergeist," playwright Alika Magas explores love, grief and what it's like to date the dead. Meet Henry. Morbidly depressed and luckless in the world of romance, he finds himself dating the ghost of Dyl, the only man he has ever loved. But when a new suitor enters Henry's life, he is forced to choose between living in the past or building an unknown future with someone who has, quite literally, a bit more heart.
