Ghost Light
Shawn Wright

January 22 - February 8, 2020

A joyful, powerful tribute to the bond of mother and son

In 2014, actor Shawn Wright spent as much time as he could with his dying mother, Regina, a self-described amateur actress “of some renown”, who, Shawn says, taught him everything he knows about theatre. Together they would watch her favourite show, Murder She Wrote, during which there would be no conversation countenanced. But in the commercial breaks, Regina shared some of the most hilarious and poignant moments of her life with Shawn. Now her son, playing both himself and his larger-than-life mother, not only gives his mom the “professional stage debut” she never got in life, he is finally able to say the words, “Mom, I’m gay.”
