A CHRISTMAS CAROL: A Victorian Reading
A CHRISTMAS CAROL: A VICTORIAN READING
In the mid 1860s, Charles Dickens took to the stage to give dramatic readings of this story to sell out crowds. Working from the text of the author's original reading copy, this year veteran actor Thom Bray faithfully re-creates the theatrical experience-- Victorian dress and all-- as a streaming event, truly the "tale told 'round the fire" that Dickens wanted his audience to image.
Appearing as Mr. Dickens himself, Mr. Bray recreates a magical moment in history when literature met theatre.

The Oregonian said of Brays performance, "No ghostly apparitions floating down from the fly space or up from a trap door. No street-scene crowds or wooden crutches. Just a room, a text, a voice and the audience's imagination." (Bob Hicks, Oregonian, December 17, 2005.)
