It was supposed to be a festive weekend in the country; a birthday getaway. In this curious play, a group of friends is tossed suddenly into turmoil, as they enter the world of a sage but declining innkeeper in a remote New England town. Through a compelling and surprising turn of events, the friends find themselves wrapped up in ghostly intrigue and mystery that tests their perception of truth and each other. To walk through the door of Mary’s Bed & Breakfast is to face vexing questions of honesty, family, and loss. As Mary slips more and more into her own deluded world, she begins to piece her lost family back together with these new strangers. Before they get out, each will have to face ghosts – Mary’s and their own.
