A Dramatic Reading of "The Canterville Ghost"

This short story, published in 1887, is, according to its author, “An amusing chronicle of the tribulations of the Ghost of Canterville Chase when his ancestral halls became the home of the American Minister to the Court of St. James.” It’s a whimsical tale, highlighting the culture clash between a 16th century English ghost and the “modern” American family which refuses to be afraid of him.
