ADAM LONG’S DICKENS ABRIDGED

“WITH MORE WIT THAN MARTIN CHUZZLE, THE REDUCED SHAKESPEARE COMPANY’S ADAM LONG HAS WORKED HIS MINIMISING MAGIC ON ANOTHER GREAT WRITER.”

Appearing at The Civic Barnsley on Friday 25th September –  Box Office: 01226 327 000 Online: www.barnsleycivic.co.uk

Official London Theatre


“IRREVERENT, WITTY, FAST-PACED AND OUTRAGEOUS!”

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.

“A VIBRANT CULTURAL MASH-UP IN WHICH ‘THE GRATEFUL DEAD MEETS THE GHOST OF CHRISTMAS PAST.”

Telegraph

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.

“IRRESISTIBLE COMIC ROMP”
