Metro Theater Company’s “Ghost” Teaches Power of Perseverance and Mentorship

    Metro Theater Company presents the rolling world premiere of a new play adapted by Idris Goodwin from Jason Reynolds’s award-winning best-seller for young readers. 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.
