STEPHEN CRANE’S STEPHEN?

by David Dannenfelser

Directed by Kevin Kittle

A Sundays@Six Series Reading in The Jewel Box Theater

It’s the possible last days of Stephen Crane’s brief life as he suffers from Tuberculosis in a Sanatorium in Upstate New York. What did the author of The Red Badge of Courage, considered by some to be the first anti-war novel, really think about war? Stephen struggles with this and other questions while dealing with fellow patients Robert Louise Stevenson and Edna Ferber and his memories of his relationships with his wife, Joseph Conrad, H.G. Wells and other literary giants. But his real-life experiences pale in comparison to the visitations he receives from the apparitions of family members and the materializations of fictional characters from his novels and stories.
