“A terrific, fun, deliciously dark comedy!”
Debbie Elias, Behind the Lens

Celebrate the DC premiere of Ghost Light, a new dark comedy by John Stimpson and Geoffrey Taylor. Stick around after the screening for a Q&A with the film's creators.

In this delightfully spooky film, the legendary curse of Macbeth comes furiously to life when a disgruntled understudy shouts "Mac…" er, the name of "The Scottish King" on an empty stage. The comically inept troupe of traveling Shakespeareans who suffer the consequences include Roger Bart, Cary Elwes, Carol Kane, Tom Riley, Shannyn Sossaman, and Danielle Campbell. All's well that ends well… but not for everyone!

Winner of jury awards at the Austin and Woodstock Film Festivals, and the audience award at the Oxford Film Festival.

“Ghost Light pulls off no small feat in finding the humor in one of the greatest tragedies ever written.”
Steven Saito,
