Ghostwriter – The True Story


FM Theatre presents this play by David Tristram. A London theatre company decides to stage a new production of Shakespeare’s Hamlet – fronted by TV Soap star Julian Dando and backed by a cast of second-rate hams. At the last-night party, Edward Pinfold, a promising young playwright, and husband of the talented but tempesuous actress, Ruby, Faces the shock of his wife’s death. One year later, Edward remains deeply affected. Unable to face the emotional torment of living in his own home, he moves into the attic room of one of his oldest actor friends, Alex. What happens next, as Alex once famously said, could be a bit hard to swallow. We join the story on the first anniversary of the death of Ruby Pinfold.

Venue: St James Cavalier, Valletta
