A romantic comedy full of high spirits in the form of the lively ghosts who inhabit a heritage home in the Queen's Park area of New Westminster. When the top-floor tenant, Timothy Grey, quits his job to write a book about one of the Royal City's forefathers, his friend, Conrad, finds a very unorthodox way to ensure the historic details are correct. With the help of a psychic seamstress, Conrad restores the resident ghost and sets off a chain of events that turns history upside down. Add in a glamorous fiancé, a cranky landlord, a pizza delivery man and a pretty librarian from the downstairs suite, and the result is whimsical fun for those who enjoy spirited comedy of the otherworld variety. Characters Required: four male and four female Timothy Grey, a lawyer who has quit his job to write a book Laurie McMardle, Tim's glamorous career-minded fiancé who wants Tim to rejoin the law firm Conrad Bright, Tech wizard and inventor who shares Tim's apartment Jenny Brooks, an attractive librarian who lives in the suite on the next floor down. Tibby Tailor, a seamstress with psychic powers who lives across the hall from Jenny Geordie Fairfax, the cantankerous landlord who owns the heritage house Mary Fairfax, the resident ghost, a voluptuously attractive lady of 'indeterminate age'. Ernie, a cheery pizza-delivery man.
