Christmas Ghosts of 1944 is short play centered around the defining life moments of George, played by local and longtime stage favorite Keith Decker. We get a brief glimpse of what has led George to be the cantankerous lonely old man he is today via a series of dream sequences, triggered by a marathon of holiday shows on the TV that has become his constant companion.
