About the Show
Alec Silberblatt’s one-person play tells the story of Mack, a yinzer (meaning he grew up and lives in the Mon Valley of Western PA) who always believed in ghosts. But after the local medium proves himself to be a fraud, Mack is left questioning what is true and what is perception. In his darkly comic tale, Silberblatt takes the audience through one man’s involvement in a vigilante killing, and into an investigation of why we believe what we believe.
