Synopses & Reviews
Before transferring to Broadway, The Mystery of Charles Dickens played to tremendous acclaim at the Comedy and Albery Theatres in London during 2000, then toured the UK and returned to the West End for another triumphant run in 2002. This remarkable one-man play is a tour de force that brilliantly interweaves Dickens' turbulent life story with some of his most memorable fictional characters brought to life by Simon Callow's breathtaking performance.
"Dickens was a man possessed with a gloriuosly theatrical imagination to which Callow's magnificent performance does full justice." The Mail on Sunday
"At once you feel that (Callow) is akin to Dickens, above all in the force with which he claims the stage, the audience, life itself." The Financial Times
