From the team that brought you The Book Club Play comes an original murder mystery based on a true story in nearby Manchester, VT.   In 1812 Russell Colvin was murdered.  His ghost haunted Manchester, VT, until the murderers were brought to justice.  Playing more than a dozen roles in this extraordinary piece of theater, Oliver Wadsworth takes us on an adventure both local and cosmic, as we follow his pursuit of the truth – to find who murdered poor Russell Colvin – and why.
