This is the published version of Christopher Cook's celebrated play based on Washington Irving's haunting tale! Available for the first time, this handsomely bound edition of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow presents all the splendor and mystery of Washington Irving's lyrical prose in dramatic form. Beautifully adapted by award-winning playwright, Christopher Cook, this stage version brings to life the eccentric characters and pastoral landscapes of Irving's timeless masterpiece. In the peaceful little hamlet of Sleepy Hollow, all is not as it appears. For behind its genteel facade lies a secret that has long loomed over the bucolic community since the Revolutionary War. The year is 1795. Our story revolves around Christian souls who share cautionary tales of ghosts and goblins, a favorite being that of a Hessian soldier who was beheaded by cannon fire. A stranger's arrival presages unusual events when Ichabod Crane, a journeyman schoolmaster, takes up residence in the quaint village. Fate plays a dark role as his relations with Katrina, heiress apparent to the Van Tassel fortune, disintegrate. Courted by another suitor, the rough-edged Brom Bones, Katrina rebuffs the teacher's advances, opting instead for his formidable rival. Enter the infamous headless horseman, wielding a razor-sharp scythe in one hand and a pumpkin in the other. Galloping wildly through brush and bramble, the goblin tears through the woodlands on a quest of revenge. An unforeseen encounter between Crane and horseman ultimately results in the pedagogue's mysterious disappearance. With a host of Irvian characters as colorful as they are authentic, and a veritable tapestry of words painted in rich images, magic and suspense abound in this tale of dark humor and gothic horror. This play and its subsequent productions is certain to secure Cook's theatrical treatment as a bona fide Halloween classic in the annals of the American stage!

So are its prejudices and hatred, targeting Mica's Cuban family and the secrets of their heritage that her mother obsessed over. But ghostly voices whisper in the wind, questioning whether her mother’s death might not have been an accident after all, and Mica knows there's a reason she's here. With the help of two very different guys—who pull at her heart in very different ways—Micaela must uncover the hidden secret of Sleepy Hollow...before she meets her mother's fate.

When Ichabod Crane, a soldier from the colonial army, is resurrected from his grave more than two centuries after he was killed in battle, he partners with lieutenant Abble Mills of the Sleepy Hollow Police Department to fight the evil forces that have taken control of the town. It's a cold day in Sleepy Hollow, and Ichabod visits Patriots Park for a moment of peace. Instead, he receives a disturbing vision from his wife, Katrina, in which she delivers a cryptic but urgent message: he must retrieve the Congressional Cross that he was awarded by the Second Continental Congress for bravery in action. There's just one problem: Ichabod was killed before he ever received the medal, and he is not sure where it might be. Together, Ichabod and Abbie set out to uncover the mystery of the cross and its connection to George Washington and his secret war against the demon hordes. They soon learn that a coven of witches is also seeking the cross in order to resurrect their leader, Serilda, who was burned at the stake during the Revolutionary War. Now they must locate the cross before the coven can bring back Serilda to exact her fatal revenge on Sleepy Hollow.
