A young man adrift.  
A young woman shrouded in loss.
An abandoned house on a forgotten hillside.
And the ghost residing there.

When Henry begins restoring an old abandoned house, his worldview is shaken
by the arrival of the ghost of Anna Catherine. Questioning her presence - and his
own sanity – Henry’s search for answers leads him straight into the world of her
living descendants and a romance that will touch his life forever. As the story
weaves through time and generations, Henry becomes the unwitting catalyst for
healing, change, loss, and love, mending broken ties between the present and
the past. This premiere production of Rod Mechem’s new play, transport a
magical story through time and space, creating an imaginative, engaging
evening of theatrical storytelling.
