For over thirty years Gerald Dickens has been performing an energetic and exciting one-man show based on his great great grandfather's most famous book, A Christmas Carol. Yet as a schoolboy and young man he could scarcely bring himself to read any of the works of Charles Dickens.

In this autobiographical account, Gerald tells the story of how Charles' ‘ghostly little book' led to a vocation and came to dominate his adult life.

From a childhood in Kent to his extensive tours of the USA, Gerald's story is filled with rich details and wonderful anecdotes, as he explains how an internationally acclaimed performance was created and honed.

By sharing his extensive performance notes he explains how every line and movement help to build the atmosphere originally created by Charles Dickens in 1843.

Gerald Dickens: My Life On The Road With A Christmas Carol is a fascinating insight into the world of one-man theatre, and a life lived celebrating the works of the greatest author of the Victorian age.
