On Friday August 13th, we fly back to the late 19th-Century, in Vermont, where literary giant Rudyard Kipling enjoys a peaceful and prodigious experience, penning some of his most beloved classics. In this solo performance, Rudyard Kipling Revisited, storyteller Jackson Gillman recalls the early years of Kipling's marriage; his time in New England; and controversy surrounding his life. Join us for Pay-Per-HAP Episode #53, produced by History At Play™, LLC (HAP, LLC), as we livestream direct to you!

In this livestream episodic series, Pay-Per-HAP introduces audiences to Rudyard Kipling, the most internationally celebrated author of his day. As the first four years of Kipling's marriage and fatherhood are spent in Dummerston, Vermont, where he built his dream house, named Naulakha (Hindi for “jewel beyond price”), these were often productive, joyous, but also troubling years for the literary giant. Kipling was guarded, a private individual, and this presentation provides an intimate peak at his life in the United States and the controversy surrounding a complex man. The program is framed by reincarnations of Kipling himself and includes a selection of poems and stories performed "just so."

Jackson Gillman, renown as "The Standup Chameleon," has portrayed Rudyard-in-Residence at Kipling's historic Vermont home Naulakha annually since 2000 and audiences have included historical societies and varied adult audiences. Rudyard Kipling Revisited has been endorsed by the NH Humanities To Go Speakers Bureau since 2015. His presentations have received rave reviews from the New England Library Association, The Kipling Society, and many other groups. Gillman performed Off-Broadway at the 2014 United Solo Theatre Festival, on 42nd Street, NYC, and received the Most Educational Award for his performance, beating out 130 other productions from around the world to claim that honor.

Running time: Approx. 40 Minutes, followed by real-time audience Q&A and BONUS MATERIALS. Episodes are viewable for 48 hours after livestream. This program is appropriate for all ages.
