Bethany is bright, strong, independent, beautiful and has zero self esteem. She has brought her fiancée, Floyd, and his mother, Verna, up to her cabin in the woods, the site of the hunting accident that killed Chance, her first husband. Much to her consternation, he or rather, his ghost is still there. Only Bethany can see him, so Floyd and Verna think she is crazy as she frantically tries to get rid of, well, it seems to them nobody. Chance, meanwhile, is doing everything he can to prevent Bethany from marrying Floyd. Bethany even brings in a delightfully kooky psychic to help deal with the ghost of Chance.
“Some plays speak to the mind, some to the heart and some hammer the funny bone. Few manage to hit all three in the same evening. Ghost of a Chance is that rare theater experience… Written by Disney veterans Flip Kobler and Cindy Marcus Ghost of a Chance is a touching, funny story of love and redemption… A roller coaster of emotions from opening to closing… [and] a sturdy reflection of life in general… Finding the humor in life’s trials and tribulations keeps you sane, and best of all, love and redemption are always there for the taking.” – Cleburne Times-Review
Ghost of a Chance received its world premiere at the Francis Wilson Playhouse in Clearwater Florida, in the summer of 1995.
