Adam Long, founder of the Reduced Shakespeare Company, has launched his new show at the Arts Theatre in London.
Following the huge success of the Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged), which played in London and around the world, Adam Long now tackles that other British literary titan, Charles Dickens.
In this hilarious, madcap show, the five-strong cast take a high-speed journey through the greatest hits of Charles Dickens, including Oliver Twist, Great Expectations, David Copperfield, Bleak House, A Tale of Two Cities, Nicholas Nickleby, Old Curiosity Shop, and, of course… A Christmas Carol!
In only 90 minutes the hugely talented cast play all of Dickens’ best-loved characters, plus take the audience on a bizarre-but-true journey through the story of Charles Dickens’ own life.
