CHARLES DICKENS READINGS BY ANDREW MACDOUGALL

Charles Dickens was as much a performer as a writer; in fact towards the end of his life he made much more money from his “readings” in England and the US than he did from his writing. For these readings he chose extracts from his books (or stories he had written) to which his audience would strongly react emotionally, and adapted them for performance. Dickens had a repertoire of twelve such readings.

Andrew Macdougall provides re-enactments of all these Dickensian performances with one exception: A Christmas Carol. Click here to find out more information.

Mr. Macdougall can be reached at 514-937-5527 or email: andrewmac@videotron.ca
