Having cut the Bard down to size, Adam Long, founding member of The Reduced Shakespeare Company, has now turned his sights on to another giant name in the history of English literature – Charles Dickens.

Dickens Abridged is a fast-paced musical comedy in which just four actors go on a high-speed journey through Dickens’ greatest hits in just 70 minutes

The show features all Dickens’ greatest hits including Oliver Twist, Great Expectations (complete with flaming bride), David Copperfield, Bleak House (in less than 60 seconds), A Tale of Two Cities (featuring a fully functioning guillotine), The Old Curiosity Shop and A Christmas Carol.

This riotous dose of Dickensian madness is coming to Lakeside Arts Centre in Nottingham on October 1.

Tickets are available now from the box office on 0115 8467777 or online at www.lakesidearts.org.uk
