The world premiere of Haunted opens at the Norman & Annette Rothstein Theatre (950 West 41st Avenue) on February 27 and runs until March 3.
Haunted by 25-year-old Toronto playwright Daniel Karasik was the 2011 winner of the Canadian Jewish Playwriting Competition. The play follows a mother named Abby, whose husband’s death encourages her to start attending synagogue. However, when Abby befriends a young rabbi named David, she starts to feel that friendship turning into something more. Meanwhile, Abby’s daughter claims that she spends time with her father’s ghost.
