The Pickwick Papers
By Doc Watson, adapted from Charles Dickens
Members of the Pickwick Club… Welcome to you all! In this year of Charles Dickens’ bicentenary, Jenny Wren Productions bring you an action-packed adaptation of his first novel, The Pickwick Papers. We invite you to join the jolly Mr Pickwick and his friend Mr Winkle as they journey around the English countryside. Warning: along the way, you may find yourselves embroiled in a series of adventures, accidents, and altercations – there will be fights, chases, elopements and even, if you’re not careful, a prison stay. All the classic characters will be there – cheerful Cockney Sam Weller, comic villain Mr Jingle and sleepy Joe, aka ‘Fat Boy’. Stagecoaches are unsettling in all directions, horses are bolting, boats overturning and boilers are bursting... Today my travels begin.
