Tall, gangling schoolmaster Ichabod Crane, both educated and highly superstitious, comes to live and teach in the quiet, rural town known as Sleepy Hollow in the Catskill Mountains of New York. There, he falls in love with the daughter of wealthy farmer Van Tassel. But he must compete with the much admired, waggish ruffian Brom Bones, whom he encounters - with absolute terror and belief - in the guise of the much storied and feared specter... The Headless Horseman.
In Washington Irving's classic ghost tale first published in 1820, the superstitious schoolmaster Ichabod Crane moves to small, isolated, and haunted Sleepy Hollow, where he competes with a local ruffian for the hand of Katrina Van Tassel, the daughter of a wealthy farmer. Until, one night, riding alone, Crane encounters a cloaked rider whose head is not on his shoulders, but in his saddle - the feared specter of the Headless Horseman. Renowned Shakespearean actor David Ian Davies brings ample suspense to this nuanced performance which is sure to leave listeners with goose bumps.
