    One thought on “Haunted Lives: Three Short Plays”

    1. HAUNTED implies ghosts, and yet, the presence of ghosts is arguable in 2 of the 3 short plays contained within. Beyond "ghosts," there's a little splatterfest, sort of preceding the contemporary trend in the horror genre of torture porn. And yet, even with the sort of graphic violence of these, most of it is hidden in shadows, just offstage, or simply suggested. Overall, these are not that scary and not really all that good.
