Christmas with Dickens
December 13, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
Join the UCSC Dickens Project on Sunday, December 13th at 4 pm for a performance you won’t want to miss!
Charles Dickens just wants to talk about his book, A Christmas Carol, but what happens when spirits begin to show up? Is Dickens being guilt-tripped by his estranged wife, Catherine; haunted by the Ghost of Christmas Present; regretting his portrayal of Ebenezer Scrooge? And what is Queen Victoria doing there? It’s full of chaos, confusion, conflict, and complaints, just like a typical holiday gathering.
The UCSC Dickens Project presents, via Zoom, an original readers’ theater piece written by JoAnna Rottke and directed by Karen Schamberg. Readers will be Andrew Davids, Frank Widman, Martha Rabin, Sarah Kauffman Michael, Chris Rich, and Mark Messersmith. A Q&A session will follow the performance.
