Dickens Abridged description

In just ninety minutes, five Charles Dickens devotees from Santa Cruz, California, bring hundreds of Dickens’ best loved characters to life: Ebeneezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim and Bob Cratchit, Miss Havisham, Bill Sykes, Fagin and The Artful Dodger, Little Nell, Charles Darnay, and The Downtrodden Poor of Eighteenth Century France, to name but a few. 

They also take you on a journey through the bizarre-but-true story of Charles Dickens’ own life – his complicated romantic entanglements, his exotic illnesses, and his inexplicable enthusiasm for performing the bludgeoning scene from Oliver Twist over and over and over again.

From the madcap pen of Reduced Shakespeare Company founder member Adam Long, Dickens Abridged is unlike any Dickens-based show you’ve ever seen before.

I was really bowled over by how well constructed the production was.I took two surly teenagers who both emerged smiling.Their conclusion of "it was awight" is fulsome praise indeed.Thankyou for your clever summary of Dickens which might instil an appreciation of literature for life.
