A GHOULISH SHIVOO
Written and performed by Drew Fairley.

In the shallowest hour of the night a faint outline appears. The ghost populi. They outnumber us. They watch us fret and obsess. But tonight, they strike up the band. Your chair has been dusted off. Your glass polished. Your lights dim. Let the music awaken in your ears and drink up the spirits.  Drumroll... Welcome. 

Ghost Salon is a lush evening of hilarious and haunting cabaret. A luminous view into those who’ve been left in the dark.  Part seance, part confessional, part spectral hooley. All welcome, dead or alive.
