After Caitlin Gabriel survives a deadly shooting at her high school, she struggles to tell her story to her parents, the authorities, and anyone who will listen. But there are other narratives that gain purchase in the media and paint her in a different light. Renowned Hollywood screenwriter Scott Z. Burns (Contagion, Side Effects) returns to the stage with this bold and chilling play that asks us to examine our relationship to the truth and the lies that claim to heal us.

When an anti-American ghost begins to haunt the White House and threaten everything our country holds dear, President Barack Obama is forced to assemble a team of patriotic Ghostbusters --- led by a surprisingly competent Sarah Palin --- to stop it. If you're looking for a night of wacky, no-holds-barred, irreverent fun, then this is your ticket!
