‘Dickens Abridged’ Rehearsals

  • November 2013

Rehearsal photographs of Adam Long’s Dickens Abridged with dream cast including Damian Humbley, Matthew Hendrickson, Jon Robyns, Kit Orton and Gerard Carey.

Dickens Abridged is the brainchild of Adam Long, a founding member of The Reduced Shakespeare Company. It’s 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 CuriosityShop, and, of course… A Christmas Carol as the grand finale in which Tiny Tim rocks the house with a searing electric guitar solo.”

The show ran at the Arts Theatre from 27 November 2013 – 5 January 2014.

You’ve expertly captured so many gorgeous moments it’s going to be difficult to choose which ones to use.

I have no idea how you got some of these shots! You really captured the feel of the day.
