Mickle Maher has become familiar to Catastrophic fans through the production of three of his plays: The Strangerer, Spirits to Enforce and There Is A Happiness That Morning Is. Set in the ghost of an old hotel, The Pine is a sort of fairy tale that deals in matters of love and death and grief. This hotel, a way-station between alive and dead, is inhabited by such characters as a 9-foot tall green bell hop who likes to cut off his head to emphasize a point; a group of pilgrims that hold a book club to discuss "The Unread Book," a book that no one in the world has actually read; a fellow whose only friend is a housefly; and his neighbor Steve, who happens to be "death" himself.
