Ghostwritten

Invite

April 28 – May 3, 2009 In the Owen
Approximate running time: 2 hours and 20 minutes

A world premiere and Goodman Theatre commission

An American woman goes to Southeast Asia and strikes a bargain with a mysterious stranger.  Twenty years later, she's become an acclaimed chef specializing in Asian cuisine with an adopted Vietnamese-born daughter and a life that is successful beyond her wildest dreamsuntil the stranger from her past reappears to collect on an old debt. A striking reimagining of the tale of Rumplestiltskin, Ghostwritten explores the relationship between America and Southeast Asia, unearthing the wounds of the Vietnam War and uncovering what it means to come face to face with the ghosts of your past.
