In a forgotten part of Detroit there is a pimp-turned-preacher looking for redemption, a stripper-turned-nurse looking for justice, and Lorelie… who just wants a baby. For ten years she has tried and for ten years she has failed. Until today when she announces to the world she is finally pregnant… and that changes everything. Ghost Gardens is a story of the humor, grit, denial and delusion it takes to survive in an urban village, pitting redemption against destruction and hope against hopelessness.
Ghost Gardens is directed by Lynch Travis. His cast for Ghost Gardens consists of four veteran Rep actors, and two actors making their Rep debuts. Leah Smith returns to the stage after most recently appearing in The Realization of Emily Linder; Cornell Markham last appeared in A Facility for Living; Jenaya Jones Reynolds was last seen in Sweet Pea’s Mama; and Will Bryson was in Firepower. Newcomers to the Rep’s stage, though not to Detroit area audiences, are Linda Rabin Hammell and Aral Gribble.
