By Steven Dietz
Nate and Cora’s family has a secret. One night while the siblings are having fun with a new friend in their basement, this secret unearths a mystery that transports them on the adventure of their lives. Along the way, they discover things about both their family and themselves that will change them forever. The Ghost of Splinter Cove conjures a world of mystery in the wilderness ... but be careful – you may get lost in what’s real and what’s not.

Children’s Theatre of Charlotte and Actor’s Theatre of Charlotte collaborated to create The Second Story Project, a unique commissioning of two plays by the same playwright, written with an interwoven theme. Both plays are set in the same house on the same evening but take place on different levels. The Ghost of Splinter Cove has young people at the center of the story. Actor’s Theatre of Charlotte’s companion piece, The Great Beyond, takes place on the house’s main floor from the point of view of the family’s adults. Both plays are independent and stand on their own. However, audiences will gain a deeper understanding of the characters and storylines by experiencing both plays.
