Gothic Ghost Tales by Candlelight
10.16.2017 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
As electrical light and modern science began to illuminate the world in the 20th century, ghost stories became more and more rare. The people of the time were less fearful of ghosts with the real horrors of war looming.
At this time, some imaginative female authors began to mix Victorian gothic tales and science fiction to create a modern ghost.
In this production, Rita Parisi will present stories by Rose MacCaulay, Agatha Christie, and Virginia Layefsky that probe the possibilities of other dimensions in time and human consciousness.
This program is free and open to the public.
