“Ghost-Writer” review KCMetropolis.org

The story of Ghost-Writer is unusual—the typist for a famous American novelist continues dictating her employer’s latest novel even after the writer’s untimely death—but “unusual” perfectly suits the creative and innovative strengths of Spinning Tree Theatre. This story is based on a rumor that has persisted about Henry James and his supposed afterlife literary contributions through the typing of his secretary Theodora Bosanquet. The three-person cast is brilliantly directed by Michael Grayman in the intimate space of the Quality Hill Playhouse, which is transformed into a cozy little study overlooking unseen New York City. In one 85-minute act the story of the novelist, his typist, and his wife unfolds.
