The Very Dickens!
“Brilliant…Bravo!” Your many many characters were all so carefully etched and created. What a Tour de Force!” – Bill Bickford, actor and singer
“Many attending Thursday’s audience left “The Very Dickens!” intending to immediately begin rereading this great author.” – Jim Lowe, theater critic
This one-man show presents veteran actor Neil Flint Worden as Charles Dickens performing an evening from Dicken’s 1868 tour of America. Conceived and adapted by Gaen Murphee from historical and literary sources, The Very Dickens! invokes an entire universe of stories and characters using the power of Dickens’s incomparable language, the actor’s skill, and audience’s imagination. Over the course of the evening, Worden brings to life over 20 characters, including “The Inimitable” himself.
This highly adaptable one-man show can be performed almost anywhere — from the largest, most well-equipped theatre to your living room.
