Dickens Abridged is the brainchild of Adam Long, who was a founding member of The Reduced Shakespeare Company. It 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 , Old Curiosity Shop , and, of course... A Christmas Carol as the grand finale in which Tiny Tim rocks the house with a soaring electric guitar solo! In just ninety minutes, an absurdly talented cast of four bring hundreds of Dickens' best loved characters to life: Oliver, Scrooge, Tiny Tim and Bob Cratchit, Miss Havisham, Bill Sykes, Fagin and The Artful Dodger, Little Nell, Madame Defarge and the Poor People of France, and many many more. A singing, dancing love-letter to the life and works of the great man, Dickens Abridged is unlike any Dickens-based show you've ever seen before.
