A spir­ited af­fair

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS - -J.L.

Ghosts are scary but fear can be funny, and a ho­tel is al­ways rife with the pos­si­bil­ity of the para­nor­mal. In Very Still and Hard to See, a one-act play by Steven Yockey, Buck Ma­son is a cel­e­brated ar­chi­tect in thrall to the power of a ter­ri­fy­ing, shape-shift­ing ap­pari­tion named Obake. In a se­ries of vi­gnettes, guests in Ma­son’s new ho­tel en­counter hell-mouths in their rooms and floors be­yond the build­ing’s height — and wres­tle with their in­ner demons, as does Buck. Santa Fe Univer­sity of Art and De­sign stu­dents per­form Very Still and Hard to See, di­rected by Gail Springer, at the Greer Gar­son The­atre (1600 St. Michael’s Drive) on Fri­day, Nov. 20, and Satur­day, Nov. 21, at 7 p.m. and Sun­day, Nov. 22, at 2 p.m. Per­for­mances con­tinue Dec. 4 to 6.
