Beguiled in early childhood by his nursemaid's grim and ghoulish stories, Charles Dickens harbored all through his life a fascination with ghosts, apparitions and chilling coincidence. This play is a collection of eerie tales from the greatest storyteller of all. The stories are a lively mixture of comedy, pathos, and the supernatural and include: "The Signal-man," "The Bagman's Uncle," "The Letter From Afar," "Trial for Murder," "The Queer Chair," "Sisters From Perth," "The Portrait Painter," and "The Lawyer and the Ghost." These stories are perfect as a new Halloween offering and can also be produced at any time of the year.
"A masterpiece of compilation and imagination." Mary Cogswell Baum
"Through a combination of superb narration, detailed storytelling and surreal reenactments, the sprawling slums of the seedy London lower Westside come alive. Don't miss this haunting and fulfilling journey into the paranormal." LA Theatre Forum
