Ghosts Can't Pay Rent

Comedy · mb stage productions · Ages 16+ · United States of America

Content Warning world premiere


A wisp, a witch, and a waitress all learn to live in an apartment where the souls are as overdue as the water bill. Olive struggles to keep up with the unending obligations of being alive; her rent, her job, and most of all, her friend Cas, a ghost that’s lived in their apartment for over 60 years. She begins to come out of her shell after meeting her new roommate Priya, a trendy writer with pagan principles. Cas, however, feels that Priya is driving a wedge between herself and Olive. Slowly feelings she never wanted to unveil bubble to the surface, and the unseen trauma that haunts the apartment begins to unravel. This sapphic saga of loving and loathing in a world of occultic observations proposes the query, just what or who are we willing to endure through life, death, love, and regret?

Content warning: Discussions of death and self-harm.
