FROM Adam Long, founding member of The Reduced Shakespeare Company, comes
Dickens Abridged — a fast-paced musical comedy.
A cast of four bring hundreds of the author’s best-loved characters to life in 70 minutes of madcap Dickensian mayhem.
It delves into the bizarre-but-true story of Dickens’s own life, including his complicated romantic entanglements and his inexplicable enthusiasm for performing the bludgeoning scene from
Oliver Twist over and over again.
Dickens Abridged will be performed at Norden Farm, Maidenhead, tonight (Friday) For tickets, call the box office on 01628 788997 or visit www.nordenfarm.org
