Spirit Journeyz is a new play by Chloé Hayat. The piece was performed as a staged reading at the Wild Project, produced through Clubbed Thumb’s Young Writers Group.
Spirit Journeyz is about a disenfranchised, feuding ghost hunting reality show hired to cleanse a deeply troubled family of "evil spirits." Big changes and a crisis of faith in the Spirit Journeyz Gang have frayed the once-harmonious friendship to a breaking point and have set up a dramatic “lockdown” investigation at the Brigg’s family home. Hugo Briggs and his daughter Rikki have been seeing demonic apparitions, and the family is desperate to return to their normal lives. The family of die-hard fans are in for a rude awakening when they learn that their favorite celebrity Paranormal Investigators are not the impassioned believers they expected. The play is highly theatrical and deals with issues of loss of friendships, the exploitation of mental illness and masculinity, delusion vs. reality, shared trauma, questions of religion and the afterlife.
