Ghost story is Playwright-Director Ramon Carver’s ‘swan song’ after 17 years with the Living Room Theatre of Saldo
“The Village,” a new production premiering at the Salado Silver Spur Theatre on Friday, Feb. 3, is a full-length comedy with “a smattering of serious scenes,” according to Dr. Ramon Carver, its 79-year-old author-director and producer.
In truth, however, the play, which “takes place in a fictional village located somewhere between Heaven, Hell and Austin,” may well be Carver’s own “swan song” to Salado and a celebrated theatrical career.
The unconventional ghost story-cum-play, staged by Living Room Theatre of Salado (LRTS), will have three performances at the Salado Silver Spur Theater (108 Royal St.) -- two at 7 p.m., Friday and Saturday, Feb. 3-4, and a matinee at 2 p.m. that Saturday. The play has adult themes and language. Parental discretion is advised.
The play’s action involves ghosts who haunt a small Texas village coffee shop where they observe live persons witnessing an accidental murder. As one character observes: “Real murders and accidental murders are pretty much the same thing.”
