Dickens Abridged in London is the brainchild of Adam Long, a founding member of The Reduced Shakespeare Company. Book tickets for Dickens Abridged in London here!

A high-speed comic journey through Dickens’ Greatest Hits, including Oliver Twist, Great Expectations (in under sixty seconds), David Copperfield, Bleak House, A Tale of Two Cities (complete with a fully functioning guillotine and singing severed head), Nicholas Nickleby, Old Curiosity Shop, and, of course… A Christmas Carol as the grand finale in which Tiny Tim rocks the house with a searing electric guitar solo.

In just ninety minutes, an absurdly talented cast of five Charles Dickens devotees from Santa Cruz, California, bring hundreds of Dickens’ best loved characters to life: Ebeneezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim and Bob Cratchit, Miss Havisham, Bill Sykes, Fagin and The Artful Dodger, Little Nell, Charles Darnay, and The Downtrodden Poor of Eighteenth Century France, to name but a few. We’re also taken on a journey through the bizarre-but-true story of Charles Dickens’ own life – his complicated romantic entanglements, his exotic illnesses, and his inexplicable enthusiasm for performing the bludgeoning scene from Oliver Twist over and over and over again.

Dickens Abridged in London is unlike any Dickens-based show you’ve ever seen before.
