Dance of the Holy Ghosts: A Play on Memory 

When: July 17-Aug. 2 2015
Price: $15-$35
The Ubuntu Theater version of Dance of the Holy Ghosts, a play by acclaimed Oakland native Marcus Gardley, takes place in the sanctuary space at the Oakland City Church (2735 MacArthur Blvd., Oakland). The play follows a young man named Marcus as he attends the memorial service for his grandfather, Oscar, who was never there for him. The story of their tumultuous relationship is revealed through a collection of dreamy memories, with poetic dialogue and support from an involved gospel choir. The production is the first play in Ubuntu’s annual summer theater festival, Breaking Chains, which takes place at venues across Oakland through September 13. The other plays include Tarell Alvin McCraney’s The Brothers Size, George Brant’s Grounded, Tony Kushner’s Angels in America, and Clifford Odets’ Waiting for Lefty. Dance of the Holy Ghosts will be performed through August 2.
