The play is described as "a witty, rollicking, Hitchcockian, roller-coaster of a ride … about life, death, metaphysics, Shakespeare, James Dean, pot and 'The Wizard of Oz.'" It follows Emily, whose two roommates, Lenore and Freedom, are actually ghosts who are haunting Emily's apartment, the very apartment in which they died 22 years before. According to press notes, "as the story unfurls, Emily sheds light onto the deaths of her two cohabitants, only to find out that if they don't move quickly, she could be the next one to kick the bucket."

Fann will also appear in the production opposite Elizabeth Hayes, Kelly Lapcyznski, Ken Jackson, Daniel Vincent and Hugh Britt. Bowd Beal will direct.
