Recitals by Mr. Dickens

From The Times, October 22nd, 1914 


As already stated in The Times, Mr. H. F. Dickens, K.C., son of Charles Dickens, has undertaken to give throughout the country for the benefit of the British Red Cross Society, a series of readings from the repertory of his father.

These dramatic recitals, which are identical with those the novelist used to give, include “David Copperfield,” in six chapters, “The Christmas Carol,” “Mr. Chops the Dwarf,” “The Poor Traveller,” and the trial from “Pickwick.”  Dates have been fixed for Peterborough, Maidstone, Tunbridge Wells, and Faversham; and visits to towns nearer London are being arranged.
