A ONE-MAN show by a descendant of Charles Dickens returns by public acclaim to Sutton Scotney.

Following his sell-out performance in February 2018, Gerald Dickens is making a return to The Victoria Hall in Sutton Scotney on Sunday October 13, 7pm for 7.30pm start.

Gerald will perform his adaptation of his great great grandfather’s novel Great Expectations.

He said: "Great Expectations is known as one of Charles’ greatest novels and is my personal favourite. My adaptation takes Pip from the lonely cold Kent marshes and follows his journey into the respectable world of London. Along the way we meet some of Dickens’s greatest characters: Miss Haversham, Estella, Herbert Pocket, Mr Jaggers, Wemmick and the AgedP. Although simply staged Great Expectations is truly dramatic." Tickets are £10 and can be reserved at eryl@boxcottage.co.uk or by calling Eryl Holt/Alistair Black on 01962 760778 / 760604.
