“Charles Dickens” to
appear on GTA-SouthernStage
"...Playwright James DeVita found telling passages from Dickens novels that play out as primer with which to
exemplify Dickens’ genius for characterization and storytelling. This show is extremely entertaining and exciting
to watch. You’ll be impressed with both Dickens’ writing and James Ridge’s masterful performance."
This exciting new, one-man play finds Charles Dickens (James Ridge) on the last stop of his final American
tour. This is Mr. Dickens’ farewell to America, and failing health be damned, tonight he is a marvel of witty,
thrilling colloquy. He slips seamlessly into characters of his own creation, amplifying his classic novels with
witty dialogue and thrilling excerpts to bring vividly to life some of the most beloved characters in fiction.
In the space between, he returns to himself, his charming, off-the-cuff insights ringing with hope. And melancholy.
Because this is also his goodbye to the audience he so loves. But like great literature, great goodbyes ignite the
soul, even when they’re long past spoken. Tickets
just $10 for adults/seniors; $5 for students (of any age).
