They say that the old Lockwood place is haunted, not only by a heartbroken old man, but also by actual ghosts. Sounds of polka music, acid guitar and people chomping on pierogi are witnessed from outside. Can the gang of Darla, Mo, Slats and Henry get to the bottom of this mystery before the opportunistic Mrs. Ingersson buys the property?

“Oh Sh#t! It’s Haunted!” plays September 27 – November 9 at the Factory Theater, 1623 W. Howard St. More information at
