Local group Ochre House Theater invites you to “join us from the comfort of your home and enjoy the haunted world of four souls in search of the essence and meaning of life.”

On Feb. 11, Ochre House is premiering a new original virtual theater series called Ghosts in the Kitchen, which is promoted as a storytelling series “of wandering souls who attempt to understand the complexities of life.” The series will feature four installments written and performed by core company members and will be available to stream on Ochre House’s YouTube channel throughout February and March. 

The first performance, titled The Romantic Night, is written and performed by artistic director Matthew Posey. Posey, who appeared in feature films No Country for Old Men, Mr. Brooks and The Magnificent Seven, plays a man who walks home from his favorite bar and “loses his way and himself in a baffling boozy world.” Struck down by chance, misfortune, chaos and more, The Romantic Night covers the “journey into a secret and wondrous night of a self-destructive boozer who finds redemption by sheer luck.” 

The Romantic Night will be available to stream from Feb. 11 through Feb. 21. Admission is $10, and you can pay online and reserve spots on Ochre House’s website. Once you buy a ticket, you can view the performance from noon on the show day until noon of the following day.

Coming up, Ghosts in the Kitchen continues with The Key to a Dark Lonely Night written and performed by Kevin Grammer, Supernova Leftovers written and performed by Carla Parker and Idle Spirit written and performed by Justin Locklear.
