The Dickens You Say
December 1, 2022 at7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Friends of Robbins Library welcome back the Delvena Theatre Company for this special presentation. Charles Dickens wrote some of the most powerful, imaginative, and adored novels of all time. Using lots of humor, the actors will take the audience on a journey into the life and loves of the great man. Through the use of monologues and scenes, the actors will embody the ridiculous, the romantic, and the frightening characters that Mr. Dickens created. They will also explore with the audience some of Mr. Dickens romantic adventures, and how he loved with every “chink and crevice” of his being. There’s a bit of scandal, and a whole lot of worship for the great man who loved Boston profoundly. The cast will open up after the show for a lively discussion regarding Charles Dickens. The Dickens You Say is supported in part by a grant from the Arlington Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
