The Blue and the Grey

The Blue and the Grey

by RS Paulette

Charlie is surrounded by ghosts. The ghost of an estranged father who leaves her an antique musket. The ghost of a classmate’s sister who cautions Charlie, The Grey will hear you.

Who are the Grey? Ghosts of Lost Confederate soldiers ambushed following the first battle of Fredericksburg, 1862.

As the Aurora Borealis light up the Virginia night sky Charlie must confront the living and the dead. She’s trying to find peace but will she make the right choice? What brings her to the centre of a barely frozen lake with the musket and her ghosts? Beat! Beat! Drums! Blow! Bugles! Blow!

This award-winning piece is haunting, exhilarating and theatrical.

Praise for The Blue and the Grey

Burncoat High School
We had an excellent time with our production. It was a great show for ensemble building, and devising around who and what the chorus of the "grey" and students are.
