WHAT: A dramatic reading with music about Robert Louis Stevenson, written by June Skinner Sawyers and directed by Tony Dobrowolski.

SO WHAT: Before Stevenson wrote Jekyll and Hyde, he was The Hermit of Skerryvore. The reading is based on Stevenson’s life and will feature music by Kathy Cowan, vocals, and Seán Cleland, fiddler. Chicago actors Jesse Dornan and Amy Montgomery will perform the reading. The event is presented by the Phantom Collective, an organization that stages pub readings and musical events.

NOW WHAT: This is a can’t miss event. Free admission. Plus the Celtic Knot has a fine menu of made-from-scratch pub grub, Irish and other beers and the “water of life (Uisce Beatha)” aka whiskey.
