Appearing at The Civic Barnsley on Friday 25th September –  Box Office: 01226 327 000 Online:

Official London Theatre


The Stage

This wonderful show is a high-speed comic journey through Dickens’ Greatest Hits, including Oliver Twist, Great Expectations (complete with flaming bride), David Copperfield, Bleak House in less than sixty seconds, A Tale of Two Cities featuring a fully functioning guillotine, Nicholas Nickleby, The Old Curiosity Shop, and, of course… A Christmas Carol.



It also delves into the bizarre-but-true story of Charles Dickens’ own life, including his complicated romantic entanglements and his inexplicable enthusiasm for performing the bludgeoning scene from Oliver Twist over and over and over again.

A singing, dancing love-letter to the life and works of the great man and unlike any Dickens-based show you’ve ever seen before.
