The Misadventures of Charles Dickens - T01797701062

What did Charles Dickens get up to before he penned literary classics? Hit comedy troupe Gonzo Moose present their riotous, fun and festive version of events in The Drum this Christmas. Young Charles Dickens is a rookie reporter on The Morning Chronicle. Whilst investigating the foggy slums of Ye Olde London Towne, he accidentally stumbles on a story that could make his reputation. This inventive and gripping comedy features just three actors playing over 20 roles in 80 minutes of fast-paced fun and thrilling action. Brimming with unfeasibly quick costume changes, stupidly surreal characters and wonderfully daft jokes, What The Dickens? is the most absurd contribution to the Dickens legend you could hope to see. Running time: 1hr 20mins (approx)Company Gonzo Moose.
