Audiences may remember Ashleigh Ann Gardner from Space, a 2016 fan favorite at the Orlando Fringe. Now the Orlando-based actor and playwright is back with Funeral Party and Ghost, two one-act plays she wrote that local theater impresario Jeremy “White Rabbit” Seghers is producing as a double bill. Gardner also directs Ghost, in which a woman is coincidentally and awkwardly reunited with a guy she ghosted after a one-night hookup. And she stars in Funeral Party, a drama about mourning that features “drinks, Chinese food, dancing, coffee” and a clandestine after-hours visit to a crematorium. That’s what we call a triple threat.
