Malcolm has a big problem––his client, Mr. Dreadful, insists he sell an old mansion by midnight. Malcolm finds a host of zany potential buyers, however, his real problem is that the mansion’s haunted by a family of ghosts who don’t want the place sold. Watch as all heck breaks loose when the ghost of Abe Lincoln, a ghostly “lift” driver, and a ghost-busting exorcist add to the chaos of the ghost family’s haunted antics to scare off all potential buyers. As the deadline approaches, a developer, a banker, and the mayor show up with plans to demolish the mansion. Only a deus ex machina could solve this problem––and fortunately for Malcolm, that’s when Deus Ex Machina does show up with the perfect solution. This whirlwind farce features a large cast and includes chases, songs, and a scary amount of laughs.
