The Show
In London's triumphant year and the bicentenary of Charles Dickens' birth, Simon Callow returns to the West End stage in Peter Ackroyd's acclaimed play The Mystery of Charles Dickens.

In a celebration of some of London's finest storytellers, The Mystery of Charles Dickens sees 49 of Dickens' best loved characters brought to life by one man in an exhilarating performance which echoes the recitals Charles Dickens himself once gave.

As Dickens' remarkable life unfurls on stage, prepare to encounter some of Victorian England's most memorable and intriguing ladies and gentlemen.

Travel to a land of pompous beadles and drunken midwives, and on through Europe and America to adventures and the most fashionable society parties.

Witness love, hatred, comedy, passion and despair, in the company of one of the greatest writers of all time - the creator of The Pickwick Papers, Oliver Twist, A Christmas Carol, Nicholas Nickleby, A Tale Of Two Cities and David Copperfield.

Please note: There will be a free post-show Q&A with Simon Callow after all Wednesday matinees between 26 September and 24 October.
