BEACHWOOD – Have a spine-tingling spooky season with two horror literature classics. The Ocean County Library Beachwood Branch will present “Your Ghost Story” by the Traveling Literary Theater, 7 PM Monday, October 24 at Mayo Park Center in Beachwood.
Bill King and Sandra McLaughlin will deliver hair-raising performances of “The Monkey’s Paw,” by W. W. Jacobs, and “The Lottery,” by Shirley Jackson.
“The Monkey’s Paw” is a chilling tale of three wishes that are granted to the paw’s owner, and the enormous price to be paid for interfering with fate. “The Lottery” concerns an annual rite in a fictional small town, in which a community member is chosen by chance, for a purpose that’s anything but lucky.
Established in 2005, the Traveling Literary Theater consists of professional actors based in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, the Carolinas, and Arizona, who perform dramatic readings and historical interpretations throughout the US.
Registration at www.theoceancountylibrary.org/events is required for this free program. For more information, call (732) 244-4573. Mayo Park Center is at 501 Beacon Avenue, Beachwood.
Light refreshments will be served, courtesy of the Friends of the Beachwood Branch.
