“Where do you go all the time?” “Into the Forlornness” “Will I see you again?” 

It’s Fritz the Shepherd’s last night on Earth. If Bavarian-born Princess Eugenie will light a candle for him down the road at the church, he’ll be free to finally cross over to the other side. But she’s grown accustomed to his visits. Will she let him go without a price?

“The Forlornness” is a new work written by MFA in Arts Leadership student Audrey Herold. Based on primary source diary accounts of a haunting in 1923, “The Forlornness” was workshopped by Dacha Theatre in 2020. Part spooky ghost-story and part poignant & sentimental, ‘The Forlornness’ feels like ‘The Woman in Black’ by Stephen Mallatratt meets “Mary’s Wedding” by Stephen Massicote. This historical-fiction thriller explores grief, hope and saying “goodbye” before you’re ready, in a tight 40 minutes with no intermission.
