Dickens by Candlelight returns, but in an all-new format, as an intimate staged reading as Charles Dickens himself read his book at Christmas each year.
This year’s Dickens by Candlelight will be presented at TLS Frankfurt with three actors reading the novella, featuring the original language and complete text of Charles Dickens’ original A Christmas Carol. Charles Dickens was inspired to write his story by the incredible poverty he witnessed on the streets of 19th-century England. His story was invitation to all of us to stop and think about how we can make a difference in our society. The message of redemption and charity is one that is as necessary in 2017 as it was when it was published in 1843. With all the complexities and nuance that Dickens’ language entails, it is a departure from what audiences have come to know from the traditional Frankfurt production, but a no less enjoyable one.
