Friends of the Dickens Forum,

     It would be a pleasure to live in London next week and be able to 
attend the following performance and symposium. (pjm)


    Is She His Wife? or, Something Singular!

*Thursday 17th of September 2015 - Friday 18th of September 2015

King’s College London and the Charles Dickens Museum*

Although not usually remembered as a dramatist, Dickens wrote several 
plays, including the one-act comedy /Is She His Wife? or, Something 
Singular!/ In staging this diverting play, we aim to recreate the style, 
music, and performance techniques of Dickens’s early theatricals as 
closely as possible.

These performances, and the accompanying symposium, will form the basis 
of a practice-led research project, as well as promoting public 
awareness of Dickens’s more obscure works, and provoking questions about 
Dickensian theatricals and Victorian drama more widely.

Details of the /TWO/ events:

*17 September:*

A performance of the play, open to a public audience.

Introduced by Professor Michael Slater, and followed by a wine reception
