In STRANGE EVENTFUL HISTORY, an actor (David Melville) is preparing to play Richard III in a rapidly approaching production. But his leading lady just quit, and her replacement (Erika Soto) doesn’t have the faintest idea what’s going on. Adding to the confusion, the director is nowhere to be found and his stage manager (Sam Breen) has it in for him. As the three characters wrestle with the complicated family soap opera that is the history of England's royalty, they uncover truths about Shakespeare’s kings (and queens) and bring the history plays to life. Interweaving the works of Shakespeare and Marlowe with new, scripted narrative, STRANGE EVENTFUL HISTORY is a humorous, entertaining and vivid race through 10 plays and 150 years of British war.

Charles Dickens was not only a great novelist but an acclaimed actor, and his greatest triumphs were solo performances of his own work. In our very own holiday tradition, ISC re-creates (with more than a little artistic license) the experience of seeing Mister Dickens in the flesh. Featuring David Melville as Charles Dickens (playing nearly every character in the story),  he's joined by a young American actress (Julia Aks) who adds musical accompaniment and dramatic interjections. The performance is full of the acting pyrotechnics Dickens was famous for as the two actors conjure an evening full of wry humor, ghosts, romance, and redemption.
