Synopsis: In The Ghosts of Us, Emma and Jackson are getting a divorce. To fulfill the terms of an ill-conceived prenuptial agreement, they must spend 36 hours together in a cabin in the Rocky Mountains. Each brings along a “witness:” As alliances shift, old grudges and long-held secrets emerge, until each member of the group is laid metaphorically bare before the others, revealing who is whole and who is broken, who holds the moral high ground, and who actually de-railed long ago. The Ghosts of Us is inspired by the darkly humorous plays of Anton Chekhov. We can’t wait for you to see it make its big debut in 2016.
