Ghost from a Perfect Place

By Philip Ridley
Directed by Michelle K. Fowler,
Presented by The VORTEX Repertory Company


Many years have passed when smooth-talking gangster, Travis Flood, returns home. The old neighborhood has fallen to ruins. Everything is smashed and broken. One evening re-living the heydays with Torchie Sparks of the old cinema followed by a face-off with Rio Sparks and her girl gang make Travis question the world he remembers. Violence is the inevitable outcome and someone has to pay. Who's it going to be?

Fact or Fiction? Truth or Fantasy? What happens when a monster from the past meets a monster from the present and their stories converge? Ghost from a Perfect Place is a play in which these extraordinary characters find their lives hopelessly intertwined, and they must struggle with the choice to escape into nostalgia or face the harsh reality that their stories tell.


Patricia Wappner, Mick D’arcy, Melissa Vogt, Tyrrell Woolbert, Jane Adoph.
