In GHOST CHILDREN, Abby Gilley, travels home to make peace with the man who brutally murdered her family, her older brother. Like the original medieval mystery plays,THE MYSTERY PLAYS wrestles with the most profound of human ideas: the mysteries of death, the afterlife, religion, faith, and forgiveness.
