Revered as one of the greatest writers in the English language, Charles Dickens is celebrated for his masterful storytelling, comic genius, and remarkably memorable characters. His early novels, such as The Pickwick Papers and The Adventures of Oliver Twist, were originally published in monthly installments, capturing a growing audience that quickly spread from England to America. Two centuries later, his popularity endures as readers revel in the warm humanity of his tales of self-discovery—and delight in the annual tradition of revisiting his holiday stories.Following the tremendous success of A Christmas Carol in 1843, there was great demand for more tales of ghostly visitation, and the great Victorian storyteller happily obliged with spellbinding tales such as The Haunted House. The drama begins with a Yuletide gathering in an eerie country retreat that's rumored to be haunted. There, Dickens and his friends, including acclaimed authors Elizabeth Gaskell and Wilkie Collins, take on the task of finding evidence of a supernatural presence in the house. When they reconvene at a Twelfth Night feast to review their findings, what will their stories reveal?
