September 24 – October 18, 2015
Walker Space | 46 Walker Street

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.
