Experience 'A Christmas Carol'as you never have before. Peter Battis becomes Charles Dickens as Dickens tells his classic tale of redemption. Charles Dickens (1812-1870) was already a famous and beloved author when he stepped onto a London stage in 1858 to read excerpts from his own works. He quickly proved himself to be a skilled performer who could move an audience to tears or laughter, and his presentations were the hottest ticket of their day. Billed as 'Public Readings', they were actually memorized one-man shows in which the author played all the parts.
