Join medium Gina for a night of haunted cocktails and spine-tickling tales from the infamous ghosts of L5P!
Horizon Theatre and “Medium” Gina are bringing you a theatrical Halloween mixer with her colorful spirit friends (both real and imagined.) You’ll meet the ghosts of Little Five Points from familiar haunts like the Euclid Avenue Yacht Club, The Vortex, The Star Bar, and Variety Playhouse to the secret witch’s coven and lonely train tracks.
Written by some of the greatest comic and dramatic talents of Atlanta, Mark Kendall (Alliance’s The Magic Negro, Dad’s Garage), Gina Rickicki (Gina’s Garbage Hour, Dad’s Garage), Neeley Gossett (writer, Found Stages) and conceived by Co-Artistic Director Lisa Adler and Nichole Palmietto, Horizon’s National New Play Network Producer in Residence who also directs, this is a comic Halloween experience hand-crafted for Atlanta 2020.
