A ghost story in the most literal sense, AFTERLIFE follows Connor and Danielle as they prepare their beachfront home for an impending storm. But when the great wave arrives on their doorstep and demands attention, it may be too late for the couple to escape a haunting world of unsent letters, unexpected snow, unrelenting birds, and unforgettable loss that threatens to swallow them forever. Told with grace, theatrical beauty and dark humor, this World Premiere is destined to be a new American classic.
"Aimée Hayes zealously championed afterlife: a ghost story from early on, providing remarkable insight and committing time & resources to development. So this production is the culmination of a truly inspiring collaboration and I'm honored to have the initial leg of this National New Play Network rolling world premier at Southern Rep." - Steve Yockey, Playwright
