I remember the first ghost who visited me. I was four years old and there he was. Sitting opposite me on the kitchen table while I was munching on my Rice Krispies. Literally fresh from the grave….

NELSON – the undertaker who can see beyond death

ALPHONSO – the self-destructive brother who can never see beyond himself

MAX – the healer? The hoax? Alphonso’s saviour? Or something far more dangerous?

GLORIA – the mother who cannot move beyond the past

DOMINIQUE – the mysterious teenager. But is she a friend or warning to Nelson?

Using elements of African-Caribbean myth and folklore, THE HEALING mixes kitchen sink drama with magic realism. The result is a unique tale about choice, faith and absolution.
