The Ghost of Cantervile is a story about a slightly conceited, slightly grumpy ghost Sir Simon de Cantervile who enjoys his own laugh, but is forced to roam his former mansion as punishment for the crime committed against his wife. The mansion is bought by the pragmatic family of the American ambassador who becomes the next unsuspecting target of Sir Simon. But he will have to give it all he has in order to scare this family. And then there is the prophecy, engraved above the library window ...


This show, an adaptation of the short story by Oscar Wilde, was the first production of Teater Megaron.
