  • On the Subject of Acquitting a Spirit

    A slightly spooky comedy by Hayden Ashworth '23

About The Show

What's more high-stakes than life and death? This year's fall play, "On the Subject of Acquitting a Spirit," explores that question from the vantage of someone who's experienced both. Written by Hayden Ashworth '23, the story centers on recently deceased Grayson Forleau as he stands trial for his life's deeds. Hampering his defense are witnesses testifying against his character and the eagle-eyed prosecutor, Helio Mallsworth, who seeks the sternest punishment possible. Just when Grayson's case can't seem any more hopeless, his lawyer's exculpatory evidence goes missing. Grayson and his lawyer are given just one day to recover the evidence, and must rely on the callous Detective Hembridge and her coterie of blundering police officers for assistance. But the closer Grayson's team comes to securing his innocence, the more his life returns to haunt him in unexpected ways. Can Grayson escape Purgatory without dredging up the secrets of his past? Join us for the virtual premiere on October 29 to find out!
