The Arts Council of Princeton (ACP) is pleased to welcome esteemed playwright Charles Evered back to the Solley Theater. Mr. Evered’s work as a playwright, screenwriter and film director has been profiled in The New York Times, BBC World and on NPR, among other outlets. He was the ACP’s Artist-in-Residence in 2009, and previously presented staged readings and film screenings with us. His latest work, An Actor’s Carol, is a fresh take on Dickens’ classic, A Christmas Carol. Evered tells the tale of Hugh Pendleton, an actor drained of life after having played the character of Scrooge to an incessant degree. Pendleton inevitably encounters three ghosts of his own in this quirky and compelling one act play.
