About the Event


By Idris Goodwin Based on the award-winning bestseller by Jason Reynolds

Running is all that Castle Cranshaw, a.k.a. “Ghost,” has ever known, but he runs for all the wrong reasons until he meets Coach, who sees something in him: raw talent. The story follows Castle as he tries to stay on track, literally and figuratively, harnessing his aptitude for speed on an elite local track team while battling the difficult realities of his past and present. Ghost also highlights the importance of allyship. As his teammates become friends and Coach stands in as a father figure, Castle finds a place where he belongs. 

A National Book Award Finalist for Young People’s Literature.

70-minutes (no intermission) followed by a 10-minute Q&A with the cast and audience. The play is recommended for ages 10 and up.
