Event Details

Enjoy a creepy good time in air-conditioned comfort! Theater Artists Olympia present The Mystery Plays, two interrelated one acts through August 27th at Oly Theater at the Capital Mall across from Old Navy. The Mystery Plays wrestles with the mysteries of death, the afterlife, religion, faith, and forgiveness—in a uniquely American way.

In the first play, THE FILMMAKER’S MYSTERY, Joe Manning, a director of horror films, survives a terrible train wreck—only to be haunted by the ghost of Nathan West, one of the passengers who didn’t survive. As the police investigate Joe, he investigates Nathan, desperate to understand why he survived and what Nathan’s specter could possibly want. In the second play, GHOST CHILDREN, Joe’s attorney and friend, Abby Gilly, travels to a small town in rural Oregon to make peace with the man who brutally murdered her parents and younger sister sixteen years earlier. The man—the murderer—is her older brother.

“…there is much to admire in this meeting of Lovecraft’s tales from the dark side and Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood.” —Hartford Courant.

“…a dandy narrative, full of offbeat characters, I-see-dead-people creepiness and a twist or two.” —Variety.
