How can you improve on a show about Charles Dickens’s stories? By having his talented great-great grandson, Gerald Dickens performing scenes from them live on-stage.
So, if you would like to have a ‘once in a lifetime brush with literary history’ come to the Under Ground theatre this evening (Friday at 7.30pm) for, ‘An Audience with Charles Dickens’.
Gerald, an experienced actor, has inherited his great-great grandfather’s gift of story–telling and his performances have been described as ‘mesmerising.’
The show takes the audience on a nostalgic ride through virtuoso scenes from several much loved Dickens’s novels in which Gerald adds his own magical quality to each of them.
You will be amazed by scenes from David Copperfield and see great moments from the Pickwick Papers.
Experience the death of Nancy from Oliver Twist and enter the classroom of Wackford Squeers in a stunning performance from Nicholas Nickleby. With only minor costume changes, Gerald becomes genial nephew Fred or poor crippled Tiny Tim and many more.
This is ‘A Dickens of a performance’ and not to be missed.
Tickets cost £11, buy them from the Tourist Information Centre or on the door.
