“Gerald Dickens’ performance of A Christmas Carol has received standing ovations all over the world. Using his own adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic Christmas tale, Gerald Dickens plays over 30 characters using vocal and physical talents to bring each scene vividly to life.
Gerald Dickens is an actor, director, and producer, and the great great grandson of the author Charles Dickens. In 1993 he created his first one-man show, a theatrical performance of A Christmas Carol inspired by Charles Dickens’ own energetic readings of the 1860s. A fascination with the life and works of Charles led him to write and direct further one-man shows including Mr. Dickens is Coming!, Nicholas Nickleby and Sketches by Boz.Dickens regularly performs in major theatres and arts centres, arts and literary festivals in the UK, as well as at hotels, stately homes, and on cruise ships.” -https://lewes.lib.de.us/2021/06/24/spoken-word-society-and-shakespeare-festival/
The list of events and resources available at the Lewes Public Library astounds! Lectures, workshops, author presentations and performances. Children’s programming, book clubs – and even a financial education series. The library’s calendar is almost overwhelming.
Here, we focus on the Lewes Library’s Performance Series, the Spoken Word Society and Shakespeare Festival. Don’t let the Shakespeare reference fool you – it’s symbolic for the most part, although there are some events that involve Shakespeare readings and performances. As for the spoken word, literary works are performed and discussed, bringing stories to life.
These events are free, but reservations are required for certain programs, so it’s wise to do a little browsing on the library’s website to be sure.
