LITTLE DORRIT - GREEN CAST
In an exciting departure from its usual Shakespeare repertoire, Lumina
Studio Theatre will produce the American premiere of Charles Dickens'
masterpiece LITTLE DORRIT. Ranking as the most popular novel with his
own reading audience, LITTLE DORRIT follows the misadventures of one of
Dickens' most unusual heroines and her eccentric family as they fall
from beggary to brilliant aristocracy. A work of satire on the
shortcomings of the government and society of the period, LITTLE DORRIT
exposes the hypocrisy of prison life is set in an English debtors'
prison (where Dickens's own father had been imprisoned) and where Amy
Dorrit, the heroine, has spent her entire life caring for her
imprisoned father. Dicken's amazing ability to create memorable
personalities reaches new heights in the story's rogues gallery of
great characters with the effusive Flora, the Bible quoting and
dominating Mrs. Clennam, the twisted servant Flintwich, Amy's vain
sister Fanny, Tip her wastrel brother, the nervy Panks, and the
irrepressibly deluded Mr. Dorrit who conducts himself always in his
debtor prison existence as "Once a gentleman, always a gentleman".
