“Ghost-Writer” review The Pitch

The pair at the center of Ghost-Writer — a novelist and his typist — step well beyond the clichéd coupling of a man and his secretary. Correctly hyphenated in this particular context, playwright Michael Hollinger’s fictional take on the relationship between Henry James and Theodora Bosanquet is a captivating and beautifully written tale of two souls, whose minds first meld in an act of punctuation.

Spinning Tree Theatre makes a strong start to its fourth season with this moving and frequently witty 90-minute one-act, being staged at Quality Hill Playhouse’s small theater. Under Michael Grayman’s astute direction, the three characters forming this love triangle play off one another with an absorbing, finespun suspense.
