LIGHTS UP ON TWO ETHEREAL BEINGS IN A METAPHYSICAL SPACE - a mattress in the middle of the desert... heaven or hell, depending on who you're sharing it with. This darkly sensual, hilariously heartbreaking, twisted new comedy thrusts two restless spirits into the afterlife - THE GHOST, a man who lived and died by his reputation, who on the surface did everything right, but had a darkness brewing underneath.. and THE GHOUL, a young woman whose absurd glamour reeks of tragic desperation, a little girl who always felt small and in death found a chance to become larger than life. As they discuss love, loss, identity, and regret - and coping with the fact that neither one of them have ever really felt alive - these two deeply complicated people reach their breaking point, as they both come to realize things aren't what they seem.

Content Warning: 18+, Strong Language, Depictions or Discussions of Violence, Sexual Content.

Artist Bio: When Vic Terry (Hot Shot Producer + Playwright) brings her fabulous good vibes, bold looks, and big laughs & Michael Simpson (Actor + Director) brings his intense and fiery passion to the party - these two become a powerfully unstoppable dynamic duo with the range! By balancing humor and tragedy they bring authentic heart to even the most theatrical work. Since 2019, “A Ghost Story” has been a labor of love; from a Halloween party, to a packed variety show at a local bar, to the San Diego Fringe Festival, & now TUCSON! This piece has spawned a beautiful celebrity power couple (in the making).

Tucson Fringe Festival

The Tucson Fringe Festival is an unjuried, uncensored performing arts festival. Following international fringe tenets, the festival provides artists with low-risk, low-cost opportunities to perform by using economies of scale to reduce venue rental costs and by taking 0% of the artist’s earnings. Additionally, the festival also provides the Tucson arts community with avant-garde, non-traditional performing arts at very low ticket prices. Finally, the festival does not curate or select the performances, maintaining an environment in which everyone and anyone can perform. This ensures that underrepresented artistic voices are championed in our community.
