This Week on Mystery Theatre:
Listener suggestions and responses

Ghost light.

It’s the light in a theatre that never goes out.

Some say it’s to keep ghosts away. Others claim it’s to light the stage for dead performers. Still others insist it merely provides illumination for stagehands.

Whatever the case, tonight you enter a darkened theatre to find a figure standing in its glow. The figure seems to be pondering a collection of stage props, but then—as you approach—it vanishes!

Reaching the table, you discover an antique journal you’ve never seen before. Where did it come from? Who was the mysterious figure? And most importantly:

How would you solve this mystery?

That’s the question that concluded last week’s episode of “In the Ghost Light’s Glow,” the new five-act mystery that opens this month’s chapter of the Prime Stage Mystery Theatre podcast.
