Dickens: The Ghost of a Smile

About

Two Dickens ghost stories with a comic twist.

​Adapted & Directed by Gavin Robertson
Performed by Nicholas Collett.

​Tales with a tingle, but also a giggle! Two yarns to chill and charm! Stories with a shiver and a smile!

Like "The Woman in Black" – but funnier, with fewer people!

From the award-winning creators of "Spitfire Solo", "Bond" and "Done To Death, By Jove!" comes a double-bill of Charles Dickens' ghost stories – with a comic twist.

​"The Queer Chair" (from "The Pickwick Papers") tells the story of Tom Smart, who sheltering from a storm for the night, gets more than he bargained for - from a wizened and debauched piece of furniture!

​"The Ghosts of The Mail". After a well-lubricated party in the old town of Edinburgh, Jack Martin climbs into a compound containing the derelict skeletons of old coaches and falls asleep, whereupon he wakes as a passenger on an eighteenth-century mail coach, with three creepy companions.

​"Robertson and Collett are exceptional!" Kansas City Star"

​"Compelling to watch…" The Guardian
