Date Posted: 10/10/2013

Dickens Abridged is a fast-paced musical comedy which opens at London’s Arts Theatre for a limited Christmas Season from 27th November to 5th January.

Written and directed by Adam Long, a founding member of the Reduced Shakespeare Company, the cast line-up for Dickens Abridged includes Damian Humbley, Jon Robyns, Kit Orton, Gerard Carey and Matthew Hendrickson.

Billed as a high-speed comic sprint through Dickens’ Greatest Hits, Dickens Abridged sees the cast of five bring hundreds of the author’s best-loved characters to life in 90-minutes.

From Great Expectations complete with flaming bride, to A Christmas Carol in which Tiny Tim rocks the house with a soaring electric guitar solo, Dickens Abridged promises to take audiences on a hilarious ride through the thrills and spills of some of Charles Dickens’ greatest works including David Copperfield, Bleak House, A Tale of Two Cities, Oliver Twist and Nicholas Nickleby.
