Joe Facer & Adam Sandy on Alex and Maggie Go Ghost Hunting
Joe Facer & Adam Sandy are founders and artistic directors of To The Ocean, a company aiming to build a collection of stories, within theatre, film and tv, exploring narratives rooted in reality but often existing in a world with a touch of the fantastical.
Right now, they are putting the finishing touches to Alex and Maggie Go Ghost Hunting, which will be playing at The Space from 31 October to 4 November, plus livestreamed on Friday 3 November and then available on-demand for two further weeks.
Whilst the title may suggest a straight forward ghost story, it promises much more, exploring sibling friendships and life for young adults in a Northern town that maybe hasn’t seen the leveling up that has been promised.
We discuss this and much more in this week’s podcast, available here and from all the usual podcast providers.
Alex and Maggie Go Ghost Hunting
31 October – 4 November – plus live-stream 3 November
In a sleepy South Yorkshire town, nothing of interest really happens. Except for Alex, and on the odd occasion, his sister Maggie. For them, this town is a perfect place to go ghost hunting (and that’s not because half of the residents look dead). But when Alex and Maggie begin their hunt, it’s their own personal lives and recent loss that comes back to haunt them.
Set in an old school hall, Alex & Maggie Go Ghost Hunting is the new play from To The Ocean that offers an authentic lens into life in a Northern town and a depiction of real ghostbusters (not really, Maggie doesn’t have a clue what she’s doing).
So join Alex and Maggie this Halloween for a night of spooky and paranormal encounters.
