Adam Long, founding member of The Reduced Shakespeare Company and co-creator of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) brings Dickens Abridged – a fast-paced musical comedy to several venues around the region.
A cast of four bring hundreds of the author’s best-loved characters to life in 70 minutes of madcap mayhem - including Oliver Twist, Great Expectations (complete with flaming bride), David Copperfield, Bleak House in less than 60 seconds, A Tale of Two Cities featuring a fully functioning guillotine, Nicholas Nickleby, The Old Curiosity Shop, and, of course... A Christmas Carol.
The show also delves into the bizarre-but-true story of Dickens’ own life, including his complicated romantic entanglements.
