The Gray Man isn’t real. He’s a ghost story, a boogeyman mothers make up tales about to keep their children safe.

A grieving young man named Simon listens to these bedtime stories outside his apartment window and yearns to leave the city he’s so afraid of. But when he meets a little girl with an old soul who speaks of missing children, Simon can’t help but feel trapped in his tenement house, where a familiar shadow waits in the darkness.

“…so ambitious…the production values are exceptional…if you see a lot of theater, you’ll admire all the chances [The Gray Man] takes.” – Ken Jaworowski, New York Times

“…Farmer, Neisler, and company, armed with plenty of theatrical imagination, proved to be remarkably skilled at the practice of raising goose flesh.” – Light and Sound America

The Gray Man excels in every possible department for a stage production…” – StageBuddy

“This is a psychological thriller with overtones of Victorian penny dreadfuls…I swear the audience was collectively holding its breath.” – Tribeca Tribune
