‘A House Full of Dust’ is the story of one family’s struggle with their past and the ghosts that refuse to leave them. It raises questions about death, morality, and the nature of forgiveness.
Set on the American frontier in the early 20th Century, ‘A House Full of Dust’ tells the story of a family struggling to understand the ghosts who reside in their home: Gretta, the housewife who can’t help but see them, Ramsey, the husband who refuses to believe her, RJ, their son who will do anything to save his mother, and Christine the lonely ghost who wants nothing more than a friend. Each member of the Cleves family benefits and suffers alike from the intersession of the ghosts, and the family must decide whether or not they can move forward together, even in the face of the unknown.
Written by playwright Bella Poynton, it is directed by Amanda Thompson, and features actors Oakley Boycott, Lars Drew, Alejandra Escalante, Renee Petrofes, George Saulnier, Jordan Tierney, and Jim Staudt. The play was first produced at Boston University Theatre Lab, and was then produced at the New Phoenix Theater Buffalo, and at Roy Arias Studios directed by Anthony Laura.
