On Book with Card Table Theatre Presents: Flesh, Flash and Frank Harris

Join us for a staged reading of Professor Emeritus’ Paul Stephen Lim’s original work surrounding the life of Frank Harris. The story follows Harris from his student days at the University of Kansas to his glittery life as an editor in London where he meets the likes of Oscar Wilde and George Bernard Shaw. Upon the publication of My Life and Loves, he was abandoned by everyone in good society. This scandalous autobiography was banned as pornography in both Europe and America; however, Harris insisted My Life and Loves was a work which helped emancipate women by loosening their Victorian corsets.
