Our Ghosts

by Sally Stubbs

Our Ghosts is inspired by the true story of the disappearance of a Canadian forces jet and two pilots, one of whom was the playwright’s father. The script explores the interplay and ramifications of the official and personal responses to the tragedy. At its heart is one woman’s lifelong quest to find her husband and how we learn to live with our ghosts.
