Is The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air an afterlife analogy?
How can Ghostbusters connect us to people we've lost? For writer/performer Ross Sutherland, such questions are enmeshed in his experience of watching and re-watching an old VHS tape that once belonged to his late granddad. Originating as a live show performed first at Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2014, Sutherland combines spoken word and poetry to sync, repeat, rewind and fast-forward through the films and TV shows that make up the stories of his life.
