"...Quotidian Theatre Company's Ghost-Writer is not a story for everyone - especially those who wish that the script would be a bit more forward-thinking with its storytelling."

"...Ghost-Writer is something of a departure for the Quotidian Theatre Company, which prides itself on doing naturalistic plays about the beauty of “quotidian” or everyday life. At the core of this comedy/drama remain several curious riddles, none of which are of the everyday sort – how writers write, how people are drawn to one another, how love dissipates. Nevertheless, Ghost-Story is a haunting play, compellingly told by Quotidian."

"...Director Laura Giannarelli - one of the founding members of Washington Stage Guild and a fine actress in her own right - has staged Ghost Writer with gentle authority, allowing the actors to blossom and Hollinger's play to work its magic. Set designer John Decker has provided a judiciously appointed, Edwardian apartment, in dark wood and just enough period detail to suit the play. The lovely set is aided by the simple yet effective lighting design by Don Slater. The piece de resistance is the work by Stephanie Mumford. Not only did she take the stage as Mrs. Woolsey, Mumford designed the fabulous costumes, providing Vivian with three detailed frocks right out of a 1915 edition of Colliers, and Woolsey's natty suit. Myra's understated ensemble completed the fine detail of the exquisite wardrobe."
