Dickens (Abridged) comes to Lyme Regis
Dickens Abridged forthcoming UK Autumn 2015 Tour, written by Adam Long. The tour will be at The Marine Theatre, Lyme Regis on Saturday 17th October.
“This wonderful show is a high-speed comic journey through Dickens’ Greatest Hits, including Oliver Twist, Great Expectations (complete with flaming bride), David Copperfield, Bleak House in less than sixty seconds, A Tale of Two Cities featuring a fully functioning guillotine, Nicholas Nickleby, The Old Curiosity Shop, and, of course… A Christmas Carol.” “It also delves into the bizarre-but-true story of Charles Dickens’ own life, including his complicated romantic entanglements and his inexplicable enthusiasm for performing the bludgeoning scene from Oliver Twist over and over and over again. A singing, dancing love-letter to the life and works of the great man and unlike any Dickens-based show you’ve ever seen before”
