We all have ghosts that haunt us. Do we run from them or hunt them down? The characters in The Ghost Moments—some young, some not-so-young, each from a very different walk of life—exist in their own worlds, all of them hunting or being hunted. Some of their ghosts are literal: Matty tries to rid his sister's apartment of a spirit that may or may not be there, Zachary prepares his bunker for the zombie apocalypse. Others are metaphorical: Marianne's absent father, Bethany's lost innocence, Caroline's memories of water, Michael's lost afternoons of love, Carver's secret powers. As we witness hauntings and exorcisms through a series of monologues, this group of characters and their loves, longings, joy and pain, will haunt us long after the curtain falls.
