Canterville Ghost at Shakespeare & Company

Posted on September 29, 2008 by Stan Rosen

ghost-poster-300.jpgInternationally celebrated director Irina Brook and her company of talented Shakespeare & Company artists have freely adapted Oscar Wilde’s story about a very American family that blusters its way into a haunted English manor, thoroughly annoying the stuffy old ghost who can’t seem to scare them a whit. In this roaringly original adaptation, Sir Simon the Canterville Ghost is re-imagined as an over-the-hill illusionist reliving his glory days in the 1940’s. Beneath the outrageous veneer of Wilde’s achingly funny story is a depth of emotion, as the old ghost’s long-delayed salvation rests upon a family’s ability to trust, and a young girl’s desire to believe.

This show runs from now through November 9th and tickets can be purchased by e-mailing boxoffice@shakespeare.org, going to their website and buying on-line, or calling 413-637-1199.

Hampton Terrace is located a block from Shakespeare & Company and frequently serves as a place the company houses its special guests and actors.   We are ranked #1 by Trip Advisor from among 30 Lenox inns, and recommended by BedandBreakfast.com as one of the top places in the country to stay while viewing fall foliage.

So pick a beautiful fall foliage weekend, choose a fireplace/Jacuzzi room at Hampton Terrace, one of the premier Berkshire inns, and prepare for Halloween with The Canterville Ghost at Shakespeare & Company.
