Dickens Abridged

Dickens Abridged

Charles Dickens' greatest hits - by a founding member of the Reduced Shakespeare Company & co-author of 'The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)'.

An absurdly talented cast of four bring hundreds of the great author’s best-loved characters to life in 90 minutes of madcap Dickensian mayhem. This fast-paced musical comedy romps through Dickens' collected works, 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 & (of course) A Christmas Carol.

Come & see a singing, dancing love-letter to the life & works of the great man - unlike any Dickens-based show you've ever seen before!
