After inheriting a remote house from her estranged mother, Dean and her partner Amanda are preparing to start a family. Their plans, though, are upended when their house gets burgled by a trickster hiding out in the woods. But the mysterious culprit can’t be too bad — apparently, the swindler loves Stevie Nicks and hot Cheetos.
For Skylight Theatre’s 40th anniversary season, Skylight is celebrating women’s visions and voices in theatre. Hungry Ghost joins Erlina Ortiz’s La Egoist and Elizabeth Dement’s No Place Like Gandersheim to complete Skylight’s exciting new lineup of productions written and directed by women.
