About the Play
The Margaret Ghost is a gripping play about the life and loves of Margaret FullerŅauthor, editor, journalist, literary critic, educator, Transcendentalist, and women's rights advocate....friend of Ralph Waldo Emerson and Nathaniel Hawthorne.
Written by local playwright Carole Braverman, this is a witty, engaging look at the struggles of a woman too intelligent to fit into the narrow role of a nineteenth-century woman, and too passionate to settle for less than the full human experience. From the parlors of Cambridge to the streets of Rome, The Margaret Ghost follows Fuller as she searches for truth, beauty and love amid the tides of history.
Theatre@First, in association with the Margaret Fuller Bicentennial, is proud to revive our 2006 production of The Margaret Ghost, bringing it to Belmont with the entire original cast!
NOW IN PAPERBACK! Never before published, The Margaret Ghost is now available in a limited, commemorative edition in honor of the Bicentennial. This beautiful trade paperback includes an Introduction by our director and an Afterword by the playwright. Purchase your copy today!
