Charles Dickens was an English writer and social critic. He created some of the world’s best-known fictional characters and is regarded by many as the greatest novelist of the Victorian era. His works enjoyed unprecedented popularity during his lifetime and, by the 20th century, critics and scholars had recognised him as a literary genius. His novels and short stories are widely read today. Dickens’s literary success began with the 1836 serial publication of The Pickwick Papers and continued on to such literary hits as David Copperfield, A Christmas Carol, Oliver Twist, Great Expectations, and A Tale of Two Cities.
A Christmas Carol runs at the Watermark Theatre from Dec 9th to 19th.
