Ghost Town

LOGLINE:  An obstinate father insists his daughter marry a rich but foolish young man.  But she loves another.  The lovers escape to a ghost town where illusion and reality, past and present, serious and absurd mix.  

GHOST TOWN, NM (New Mexico) is a cocktail mix of Shakespeare’s plays, ghosts (real and imaginary), language and images from Dungeons and Dragons, “Painted Ladies” in the Sassy Ladies Cat House, serial killers, gunslingers, a team of totally incompetent private investigators, and much more!  Throughout this comedy, characters explore what is real, what imaginary.

ADI

An African proverb says, Those in love with illusion refuse to accept reality.

YURI

That Russian . . . again!

Kia takes both their hands.

KIA

And an African proverb says, He who forgives ends the argument.

Yuri and Adi laugh and hug.
