Must see theatre – The Mystery of Charles Dickens

Simon Callow gives a wicked performance in his one-man show of The Mystery of Charles Dickens at London’s Playhouse Theatre. On stage for nearly two hours Callow brings Dickens, and many of his books characters to life in a mesmerising performance that keeps your attention to the very end.

“You’d make a marvellous actor if it wasn’t for your books” was one of the quips said of Dickens during his lifetime. Indeed, it seems as if he took on the persona of many of his fictional characters.

Worth visiting also to see the splendour of the intimate, Grade 11 listed Playhouse Theatre which has retained the  splendour of a bygone era. Onln for a limited season, The Mystery of Charles Dickens ends on November 10,2012.
