A Dickens Double Bill
Performed by Gerald Dickens – Actor and Great Great Grandson of Charles Dickens presents two short stories.
The Signalman is a fabulously atmospheric ghost story. In a deep, damp railway cutting a lonely signalman tells his terrible tale to a complete stranger. The signal box, the tunnel, even the telegraph wires seem to haunt him at every turn
Doctor Marigold (one of Charles' most popular performances during his reading tours) is a market cheapjack, addressing the audience directly with his fast-paced sales patter. As he talks, he begins to tell his life story, which is at once funny, tragic, heart breaking, uplifting and ultimately life affirming.
