Open Mic Night at Westminster Cemetery

By Mary Amato

A unique hybrid between a play and a novel with an outspoken, feisty heroine who happens to be dead

When Lacy wakes up dead in Westminster Cemetery, final resting place of Edgar Allan Poe, she's confused. It's the job of Sam, a young soldier who died in 1865, to teach her the rules of the afterlife and to warn her about Suppression—a punishment worse than death. Lacy desperately wants to leave the cemetery and find out how she died, but every soul is obligated to perform a job. Given the task of providing entertainment, Lacy proposes an open mic, which becomes a chance for the cemetery's residents to express themselves. But Lacy is in for another shock when surprising and long-buried truths begin to emerge.

  • Unique hybrid between a play and a novel
  • Quirky cast of characters and an outspoken, feisty heroine who happens to be dead
  • Underscores importance of speaking emotional truths
