Inspired by the playwright’s visit to Dickens’ house in London, this epic tale imagines a fictional episode in the life of the young Dickens, when he was working as a reporter for London’s “Morning Chronicle.” The performance is a co-production with the award-winning Antaeus Theatre Company, with sixteen actors portraying more than one hundred and thirty characters.
