Mr. Dickens Tells a Christmas Carol Friday, December 4th through Sunday, December 27th
Charles Dickens will hold court inside the Lyndhurst mansion on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from Friday, December 4th through Sunday, December 27th with additional performances on December 21st, 22nd and 23rd. Mr. Dickens Tells a Christmas Carol is a recreation of Charles Dickens’ own readings of the classic tale that brings the travails of Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim alive. Dickens wrote a Christmas Carol in 1843 and performed public readings while touring throughout England beginning in 1857 and in the U.S. from 1867-1868. The performance is given throughout the rooms of the main floor of Lyndhurst mansion. This gives a novel way of simultaneously experiencing Lyndhurst and Dickens’ classic tale.
