Ghostlight at Real Art Ways

Skip to main content



“Beautifully realized. A simple, throwback, redemptive story about the very personal roads of grief we all must travel, Ghostlight connects as authentic and heartfelt, but there’s also a sneaky profundity to match.” – AV Club

“‘Ghostlight,’ named for the single bulb often left burning in a theater when all the rest of the lights are shut off, keeping it from total darkness. If that sounds like a metaphor, it is.”- NY Times


When melancholic construction worker Dan (Keith Kupferer) finds himself drifting from his wife and daughter, he discovers community and purpose in a local theater’s production of Romeo and Juliet. As the drama onstage starts to mirror his own life, he and his family are forced to confront a personal loss.
