Bookings Open for Callow as Dickens

News   Bookings Open for Callow as Dickens

Bookings are now open for Simon Callow's hit one-man show, The Mystery of Charles Dickens, playing at the Albery Theatre for a limited run March 7-31. The play, about the life of one of England's best-loved writers, was written by Charles Dickens biographer Peter Ackroyd.

Callow also scored a hit with an earlier one-man show, at the Savoy Theatre, on Oscar Wilde. Callow, a leading West End actors, is also a director and biographer of note. His bravura style lends itself perfectly to a representation of Charles Dickens, an author who in real life made an art form - and a fortune - out of highly dramatic readings from his novels: his account of the brutal death of Nancy in Oliver regularly led to fainting fits among women in the audience.
