A woman and her former-supermodel grandmother must fight a possessed dummy that has haunted her family since the fantastic success of her world-famous ventriloquist great-grandfather. Playwright Lee Guzman, whose stage debut You Got Moxie explored the psychology of a reclusive former 1950s child star coming out of retirement to oppose the Vietnam War, here taps into the strange twentieth-century appeal of famous ventriloquists and their dummies like Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy. Dummies are always ripe for spookiness, but Dominic takes a unique angle, playing with their place in American pop culture.Available for pre-order now in eBook, with a paperback edition to follow, you can guarantee your copy here.
