The cast of Lucian O’Keefe’s 1946 ghost play ‘Scared to Death’ are ready for their final dress rehearsal, but all is not going smoothly. Actors are bickering, one can’t learn their lines, the director is on the edge of a nervous breakdown and the ghostly happenings of the play seem to be encroaching into the real world. Slowly fear takes hold as tales of the play’s curse seem to hold true and the cast find themselves caught up in a terrifying ghost story.

A Community Theatre production of ‘The Revival’ by special arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd and NZ Play Bureau.
