Hapless Haunting of Helen Hinklemire, The

FARCE. In this boo-tifully funny play, Mike buys a house haunted by a beautiful ghost, which makes his fiancée, Sally, instantly jealous. Determined to rid the house of its gorgeous ghost, Sally and her friend, Jane, arrange for a paranormal investigator to hold a séance. At the séance, several ghosts appear including a pirate, a coalminer, the Ghost of Christmas Past, and a dyslexic ghost who yells “Oob!” instead of “Boo!” Then when Sally stands up in the middle of the séance and tells the ghost off, things go downhill fast. There are kooky characters, madcap misunderstandings, and sight gags galore in this frighteningly funny play!
