The Canterville Ghost
Play by Marisha Chamberlain
Script and performance rights available from Playscripts, Inc.
A no-nonsense American family buys an old mansion in rural England, scoffing at warnings of a fierce and violent resident ghost. The spirited Americans — Mother, Father, young Virginia, and her mischievous little twin brothers — may have found their match in the equally spirited and clever ghost, who is determined to scare them out or worse. He’s outnumbered, however, and in the end, kind-hearted Virginia helps him fulfill the terms of the legend that allow him release into the afterlife.
“It’s a pleasure to take the kids to see something that diffuses fear with humor, such as The Canterville Ghost…definitely a ghost story with a difference…and a particularly fine one.” − Dallas Morning News
