Ghost’s Alive

In the summer of 2020, actor Claire-Monique Martin put together an online writing festival of 80 new plays to help raise funds for Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London. During the COVID crisis, The Globe received zero financial help from the Government or The National Lottery Fund. I was privileged to have ‘Ghost’s Alive’ to be a part of the line-up, a monologue that was my own way of dealing with the emotional fallout of being a living ghost to an ex of mine.
