GHOST IN THE PLAY
A PICT Educates webinar hosted by Alan Stanford
Friday, April 23, 2021
2pm ET – Live on YouTube!
One of the more interesting ways that a writer can advance the effect a character has over the plot of a play is to let them die. But not just die – the dead are far more effective if they return.
Belief in, and fear of, ghosts has been a part of the makeup of humanity from the earliest of times and writers of drama have often made effective use of that belief – and that fear. In this PICT Educates webinar, we will examine some of the ghostly members of the cast of several plays and how the playwrights have employed them.
This webinar is free and appropriate for all ages.
