155 - Ghost Writer (2007)

A theatre company decides to stage a new production of Shakespeare's classic - fronted by TV Soap star Julian Dando, and backed by a cast of second-rate hams. At the last-night party is one Edward Pinfold, a promising young playwright, and husband of the talented but tempestuous actress, Ruby, who had played Ophelia. Tragically, that very night, Ruby - a renowned reveller with a reputation for burning the candle at all three ends - is found dead in bed. An overdose of naughty pills and booze. The theatre world went into a state of mourning that barely lasted into the afternoon. One year later, however, Edward remains deeply affected. Unable to face the emotional torment of living in his own home, he has moved into the attic room of one of his oldest actor friends, Alex. We join the story on the first anniversary of the death of Ruby Pinfold. May she rest in peace.
