Midweek pick: Dickens' untold stories at his 'perfect' venue

THE venue which played host to Charles Dickens and his famous penny readings is marking the author’s bicentenary with two special performances this week. 

St George’s Hall’s Concert Room, described by Dickens himself as “the most perfect room in the world” will play host to A Christmas Carol – as told by Jacob Marley (deceased) and Fagin’s Last Hour.   

Both productions have been written by James Hyland who also performs in the critically acclaimed one-man plays. 

A Christmas Carol – as told by Jacob Marley (deceased) has already been a big box office success at theatres around the UK and in the West End. 

Suitable for those from seven years up, it is told from the perspective of Scrooge’s deceased business partner, “delivering thrills and chills” as he recounts the tale of miserly Ebenezer and the path that lead to his redemption. 

Fagin’s Last Hour is an adaptation of Oliver Twist and gives a never before seen insight into the character one hour before his execution and was described at The Dickensian (the official journal of The Dickens Fellowship) as “powerfully portrayed”. 

Hyland said: “I'm absolutely delighted to be performing at St George's Hall Concert Room.  To be performing my own one-man show adaptations of two of Charles Dickens' finest works is a very great honour indeed, especially considering the fact that Dickens had performed his own reduced versions in the very same venue; a venue of immense grandeur and history.” 

Your favourite bit of the web is FULL of last minute joy and Liverpool Confidential has two pairs of tickets to each of these performances on a first come-first-served basis.
