Ghost on Fire


Presented February 21 - March 9, 2008 at The Lion Theatre at Theatre Row

Michael Weller’s play, Ghost on Fire, tells the story of a trio of friends who worked together in their student days making films they hoped would change the world; now, fifteen years later, they  are nostalgic for their lost idealism and unhappy with the choices they have made in the "real world."  As the events of the play unfold, they are each, in their different ways, forced to confront their compromise, their  failed aspirations, and their mortality, and challenged to reclaim what is best in themselves.
More pictures of Oberon's production of Ghost on Fire are in our Gallery.
