What do a man, a woman, a ghost and a divorce lawyer have in common?  The answer can be found by watching the first production from the Rising Curtain Theatre Company of Bloomfield. The play written by Oscar-, Pulitzer- and Tony Award-winning author and playwright, John Patrick Shanley, will have the audience rolling with laughter as the characters look to make sense of their lives while seeking to find love and a sense of belonging in the process.
