And join us for the second play curated by Greg for the Classic Theatre of Maryland: The David W. Frank series of New Play Readings continues “In the Tradition” of great writers with The Ghosts of Dickens. The beloved creator of A Christmas Carol confronts his past, present and future in a staged reading of this new play by Maryland playwright John Becker for one night only: Monday, December 11 at 7:30 pm at the Classic Theatre of Maryland in Annapolis. Charles Dickens had his own battles with poverty, romantic disappointment, loss, and joy. When those closest to him appear, we learn just how much Dickens’s own travails influenced his immortal classics. Doors open at 6:30 pm. Tickets are $20.00 and can be reserved here: https://ci.ovationtix.com/36626/production/1176445
Subscriber bonus! Free admission for season ticket holders! The David W. Frank Play Reading Series honors the late David Frank. Though he enjoyed a long career as a teacher, director and actor in Boston, he remained a loyal son of Baltimore and a devout Orioles fan. In his starring role as a high school English and drama teacher, he staged scores of plays and musicals, from "Ten Nights in a Barroom" and "The Mouse that Roared" to "Curtains." This series is underwritten by Julia Frank and Mark A. Graber in memory of David Frank.
