The great-great grandson of Charles Dickens will perform his live adaptation of A Christmas Carol at the Cinema Arts Centre on Dec. 5.
Gerald Dickens, who has been performing his one-man show since 1993, will play more than 30 characters from the 19th Century classic novela of redemption. The themes of the work include poverty and the ability of a rich but selfish man to transform himself.
Charles Dickens performed public readings of his work from 1849 until 1870, the year he died.
The show will begin at 7 p.m.
Gerald Dickens is an actor, director and producer.
Copies of his new book, Dickens and Staplehurst: A Biography of a Rail Crash, will also be available at this event.
