About Christmas with Dickens, A New Twist on an Old Ghost Story

Charles Dickens just wants to talk about his book, A Christmas Carol, but what happens when spirits start 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.
