Boo! New Australian comedy Ghosted lands at Chapel Off Chapel

Melbourne based director-producer Gabrielle Reiher and writer-producer Michael Thebridge have teamed up again to create Ghosted, an original comedic work that will open on Chapel Off Chapel on May 30, 2019. Ghosted is the first work of theatre Reiher has directed since running Richmond’s Owl & Cat Theatre between 2014 and 2017. 

After a well-deserved year’s break from theatre, Reiher is bringing a newfound approach that’s been honed through her work in casting and TV production to the stage. A  2 act play, Ghosted follows Oliver, who invites a stranger around to his apartment for some company – and works out pretty quickly that he’s only interested in one thing  and it isn’t the wine...

Things go from bad to worst-case-scenario when Oliver’s house guest attempts to make a covert getaway and gets run down by the rideshare he was meant to be escaping in. Before the night’s done Oliver is stuck with the ghost of a bad decision in his apartment - and in desperate need of a way to get him out!

Featured in the cast is Lucinda Cowden (Neighbours) who’s joined by Greek-born, Australian-based actor Kostas Moustsoulas as the story’s loveable hero Oliver.  Jayden Popik (previously Owl & Cat Theatre’s resident actor), Holly Chadwick, Max Meaden and Ian Hart round out the ensemble.

Reiher has a distinct vision and energy for the show. Returning to Melbourne’s theatre scene is just as exciting a prospect for the director. 

Reiher and Thebridge previously collaborated on 2015’s original work After Party which made its Australian debut at the Owl & Cat Theatre in December 2015 to a sold out season run. During her 3 year stint at the helm of the Owl & Cat Reiher staged over fifty independent theatre productions across Melbourne and the USA as well as directing 29 herself. This is Thebridge’s second produced and staged show.
