On Theatre

Availability: Ready to download

Dickens’ burning passion for theater has often been overlooked by fans of his novels. A keen playwright and actor, he staged performances for which he oversaw every detail, and personally adapted many of his own fictional works. As a consummate self-publicist, he also undertook numerous stage tours and public readings of his own work. For Dickens, and for large swathes of Dickens’ burning passion for theater has often been overlooked by fans of his novels. A keen playwright and actor, he staged performances for which he oversaw every detail, and personally adapted many of his own fictional works. As a consummate self-publicist, he also undertook numerous stage tours and public readings of his own work.

    A really interesting read, a collection of essays, short stories, novel extracts and speeches from Charles Dickens about the theatre. I really enjoyed reading all of these, although it was a bit frustrating that the collection didn't source any of the extracts or mention where/what year they were from.

    Ever wanted to know what it was like attending the theatre in England during Victorian times? Charles Dickens exquisitely entwines journalistic observations with fictional narratives and creates a short book well worth the read.
