ABOUT THE SHOW
The Dickens!’ by Dawn Buchanan
from the works of Charles Dickens
From the darkly comic to the delightfully absurd ‘ What The Dickens! ’ has it all.
Tongue in Cheek brings some of Dickens’ most colourful women to life - and unites them through love, loss and donkeys! David Copperfield, Martin Chuzzlewit, Pip and his Great Expectations…..Behind every great man there's a woman….... Learn the Art of Sick Nursing with Sairey Gamp as she sheds some light on those twin mysteries of existence ...... birth and death. Meet Betsey Trotwood who brings you the very latest news from the front as she continues her war against donkeys. Find out if the Spenlow Sisters give their blessing to a love struck young suitor - or will Mister Pidger throw a spanner in the works? The characters are fresh, funny and resonant for our times, they may remind you of someone you know.
original music from Greg Oldfield.
