The Thirteenth Chair
Ghostlight will present a staged reading of the Bayard Veiller play, The Thirteenth Chair, a turn-of-the-century thriller set during a séance. The reading will be directed by Ghostlight Managing Director Chad Wise.
The Thirteenth Chair, written in 1916, takes place at the home of the wealthy Crosby family. But the phony séance turns out to be the scene of a very real murder. All the doors and windows are locked and the murder weapon can’t be found. How will the real murderer be uncovered?

Believe: A Festival for Young Audiences
In February, the company continues its Nightlight young audiences series with a curated festival of short plays by playwrights from around the country.
The plays, geared towards children 12 and under, will all have one unifying feature – strong female characters.
This is an expansion of our Nightlight young audiences series, which produces original, adapted and forgotten plays geared toward children and the adults who love them.
much ado about nothing
In April and May, Ghostlight will produce Shakespeare’s beloved romantic comedy, Much Ado About Nothing.
Audiences will be invited into Leonato’s Albany Park home to witness firsthand the merry war between Benedick and Beatrice, as well as the less merry machinations of Don John. This immersive production brings guests, not to a theater, but to a condo on Chicago’s westside.
