Running Out of Time is a clever play on the idea of Williamsburg or any other community where actors bring history to life. Except in Clifton, Indiana, some of the people aren't acting. The children, who have lived in Clifton all their lives, really believe it is 1840. Narrator Kimberly Schraf has the voice of a favorite teacher, promising wonders and enchantments as she reads Jessie's riveting story. M.C. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
