Mary-Arrchie Theatre Co. is pleased to continue its 30th and final season with the world premiere adaptation of IBSEN'S GHOSTS, adapted and directed by Neo-Futurist Founding Director Greg Allen. Wrestling with the themes of identity, truth, fate and freedom, Allen puts his trademark meta-theatricality on Henrik Ibsen's scandalous 1882 play, Ghosts. Allen's unique spin on Mrs. Alving's classic battle with Pastor Manders includes humor, self-referentiality and a bit of irreverence in this, his first, and apparently last, show with Mary-Arrchie.

On May 6th, 1882 – on the eve of the greatest wave of immigration in American history – President Chester A. Arthur signed into law a unique piece of federal legislation.  Called the Chinese Exclusion Act, it singled out by name and race a single nationality for special treatment: making it illegal for Chinese laborers to enter America on pain of imprisonment and for Chinese nationals ever to become citizens of the United States.
