HotHouse Theatre's
Dickens' Season - 2021

 In 2020 Hothouse Theatre was going to mark the 150th anniversary of Charles Dickens’ death with a Season of all things Dickensian.

There was going to be a bit of Oliver Twist, along with a dash of A Tale of Two Cities, a hint Nicholas Nickleby and a large seasonal helping of Ebenezer Scrooge and all that.

Well, you know what happened to 2020? That happened to our plans as well.

Not to be down hearted, we have done a bit of planning and turned our 150th Anniversary Season into a 151st Anniversary Season, of his death; 185th Anniversary Season of his marriage; 209th Anniversary Season of his birth; and we invite you to take your pick.

Basically we are going ahead with our Dickens Season, or what remains of it, anyway.

Of course everything is going to start online ... there is no guarantee that it will not finish online ... but that it what we are all facing at the moment.

We are going to do audio adaptations, podcasts and workshops.

We will be looking at his life, how Dickens would stand up to today’s moral values, but mostly we will be looking at the works of Dickens.

And we are asking you to get involved. Either by attending discussions, watching the adaptations or even having a go at acting in them.

If you want to get involved then get in touch.

Oliver Twist
“Please, sir I want some more.”

One of the most famous scenes in literature, when Oliver draws the short piece of string and has to go and ask for more food.

Oliver Twist is a classic trip round the poverty of London’s under world of the C19th.

It still has plenty to say to a modern audience.
