Adaptable Theatre present
Adapted from the works of Charles Dickens
Following two successful runs at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2014 and 2015, Ian Pearce has joined forces with Tim Knight to present Double Dickens
Doctor Marigold’s Prescriptions is a lesser known Dickens gem – a gripping, funny and moving tale. Marigold is a Victorian peddler who tells the story of his life on the road and how he rescues a poor girl who is ‘deaf and dumb’ from a cruel fairground owner.
The Trial of Pickwick centres around the trial of Mr Pickwick for the breach of promise of marriage to the widow Bardell. Pickwick’s defence is hindered by his incompetent friends which proves disastrous as he crumbles under severe cross-examination. An enjoyable evening of great storytelling filled with tears and laughter.
