Next up we feel like having a literary laugh with a group of actors we’ve already seen once this week. It’s Dickens for Dinner at +1 @ C venues – C (sounds more like an algebra sum than a venue) at 13:30 on Friday 25th. Here’s the blurb: “The cast of the sell-out Shakespeare for Breakfast are inviting you back for dinner with a Dickensian twist! Join us for a deliciously daring look at this classic British author, with a feverishly funny flavour. Who says literature can’t make you laugh? Sit down for a truly surreal repast. Dickens goes delirious. Bring your Great Expectations to see what the Pickwick Papers have been raving about. Free soup!”
We enjoyed last year’s Shakespeare for Breakfast so much that we had to book again for this year – and on the strength of that we’re giving their Dickens a chance too. It will be interesting to see if there is equal scope to tease humour out of the old Victorian – but if anyone can, the SfB team can! Check back shortly after 2.30 pm to see how much fun it was. By then the next preview blog should be available to read too.
It was exactly as you’d expect – all the fun of Shakespeare for breakfast, with added Christmas Carol. They put such energy and anarchy into their shows that they’re simply irresistible. Another winner!
