Strangers Waiting for a Train

Blackout’s Theatre’s take on A Christmas Carol is marvelous—whimsical yet dramatic with fine acting, haunting live music and some wonderfully creative puppetry. The kids will love it, but more importantly, you will probably love it, too.

Book Review

Gray’s Anthology

Posthumous journal collection is patchy but endearing
