 Grey Area Productions returns to the Pump House Regional Arts Center with a compelling ghost story, The Thin Place. Performances run October 19-21 and 26-28 at 7:30 pm, and October 22 and 29 at 2:00 pm. Tickets are $10-$20 and are available through the Pump House box office. The performance on October 19 is free admission, with donations supporting Grey Area Productions and the Pump House.

Written by Lucas Hnath, The Thin Place is the story of two women, Hilda and Linda. Linda communicates professionally with the dead – who are still here – just in a different part of here, in the “thin place.” She can make those who believe hear them, offering them peace and closure and meaning. Originally from rural England, she’s reestablished herself in the U.S.— the birthplace of spiritualism—where she has continued to build a career out of her gift. Hilda, a keen listener and observer who’s grappling with loss, takes a great interest in Linda’s abilities. She befriends the veteran medium, seeking answers that lie across the fragile boundary between our world and the other one.

Hnath’s play bristles with disquieting suggestion, probing the most timeless questions about reality, the impressionability of the mind, and the omnipresence of death as we float through life. With acuity and relentless curiosity, Hnath’s play transforms the theater into an intimate séance, crafting an unnerving testament to the power of the mind.

Doors open 30 minutes before curtain. Tickets can be purchased online at, by calling 608-785-1434, or by visiting the Pump House Box office at 119 King Street in La Crosse.
