Five ghosts who faced adversity in life will be homeless when the historic building they inhabit is demolished. Sarah Bernhardt, baptized Catholic, faced anti-Semitism in the 19th century for her Jewish heritage; Elizabeth Keckley, former slave and companion of Mrs.Lincoln, was subjected to racism during travels with the widow; Buffalo Bill, Indian fighter in his youth, mourned the death of his great friend Chief Sitting Bull; Marcel Duchamp created a controversial genre of visual art using found objects; Alice Lansen, accused thief, was a self-proclaimed baroness. Together, they look to a “living” lesbian couple to help them find new homes.
