    Love never dies, it just becomes...otherworldly. In this play, we see a ghost help his friends find love, but also help his former lover move on to new love. As David eloquently tells his new bride "there will always be a place for him inside my mind, but it’s a safe place, with a door on it. Sometimes I might open the door and look at a nice memory, but I’ll always close it again. Do you know why? Because you’re here." A beautiful tale of love and loss.

    Our past relationships often come back to haunt us, and this very funny, moving, full-length dramedy , complete with three over-the-top ghosts, proves this point. Fully-developed characters, with a riveting plot, and witty dialogue, “Paranormal Love,” is modern theater at its best! Brava, Jennifer O’Grady!

    Mix a dash of Harry Met Sally with a smidgen of Truly Madly Deeply and you get a touching story of love and loss before and after death... "He doesn’t talk to you, darling. He talks to his memory of you".
