SCHEDULE OF EVENTS:
Festival Saturday, February 17, 2024
Grady is bringing a new format to the Festival Saturday event lineup with his one-of-a-kind, one-man show, tap dancing through the haunted hallways of houses from Downton Abbey-sized country homes to split-level suburban ranchers as we try to figure out why we’re so obsessed with the world’s worst roommates: ghosts.
Louise’s parents have passed away, and she’s returning to the small Southern town where she grew up to get their house ready to sell. It means she’ll have to spend time with her younger brother—and their old grudges make that a terrifying prospect. But childhood hurts pale in comparison to the dangers posed by what still lives inside the house.
