THE MYSTERY PLAYS
by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa
directed by Christopher Basile
Inspired by the yuletide tradition of the medieval mystery plays, the two interrelated one-acts in THE MYSTERY PLAYS wrestle with the most profound of human ideas and beliefs – but with a horrific twist. The holidays will never be the same for the unsuspecting people sent on their mysterious journeys into the unknown… and the unknowable.
In "The Filmmaker's Mystery," a director of horror films visiting his family for Christmas is the sole survivor of a terrible train wreck, only to be haunted by the ghost of one of the dead passengers. In "Ghost Children," which takes place at the same time, a lawyer returns to her hometown for the first time since her brother brutally murdered their parents and younger sister.
