THE HOOSAC is a ghost story about a lonely soul who can’t escape his past life. Inspired by the real life Hoosac tunnel tragedy where trapped miners suffocated to death in a small isolated New England mill town in the mountains. A solitary man in NYC feels that he is losing his mind. He is burdened with nightmares, has trouble breathing, is seeing things, and hearing voices. When medication doesn’t help, his doctor suggests that he take a vacation. He is drawn to the Berkshires where he finally has respite. But the calm is short-lived, as he wakes up in his own nightmare. Matilda Szydagis plays Zelda on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. She is also a writer, director, producer, and artist and considers herself a Renaissance woman. Ric Sechrest holds degrees from Syracuse (BS, Acting), Ohio University (MFA, Acting), University of Maine (MA, Directing). Both are horror buffs and reside in NYC. Please enjoy our old-fashioned ghost story that gives homage to The Shining and other horror movies from the 70s and 80s.
