Return Of Peter Grimm, The

Synopsis:
the Return of Peter Grimm tells the tale of a big-hearted, short-sighted man whose plans for his loved ones don't take account of their wishes or his likely demise. But when his heart fails, the family and business he has built are set to fall apart, and he must return from beyond to set things right. With no one else able to see or hear him, it is up to an eight-year-old boy to bring his message home. a novel play in its age, leading to its author/manager's developing a new technology to bring the afterlife onstage, the Return of Peter Grimm is at times a harrowing ghost story. It is also an astute examination of the stultifying power of tradition and the courage needed to rebel against stifling rule. Touching on women's rights, the promise of scientific inquiry, and the dangers of conventional thinking, this piece of popular theater is also a record of an uneasy age.
