Ghost Light is a provocative comedy that follows
an unfortunate Shakespearean acting troupe that unleashes the
infamous curse of Macbeth with horrifying results.
Nothing is more sacred to true Shakespearian actors than “The
Scottish Play,” which demands a deep reverence to always be
exhibited both onstage and off during a performance. Except
the reverence from ennui-engulfed Tom Riley is a bit lacking,
to say the least. He’s in love with the beautiful Liz Beth,
wife of pompous ham Alex Pankhurst. Liz and Alex are playing—respectively—Lady
Macbeth and Macbeth in the small stage production they’re preparing
for their local New England theatre. And Liz loves Tom back.
Also: Tom wants to play Macbeth. Their underfoot costars make
it almost impossible to be alone, until Tom decides that the
Scottish Curse so oft mentioned by actors is just baloney. That’s
when the witches, ghosts and murder-mayhem really get started
and Tom, Liz Beth and everyone else, find themselves trapped
in a stage play nightmare, albeit a hilarious one.
