About the Book:

Beatrice Manely has selected 80 scenes from various Dickens classics, providing as well, background information, a discussion of the character's emotional temperament, and a short summary of events that lead into the selected scene. This book for the first time allows actors to play Dickens in the unmatchable original. An Actor's Dickens is a useful guide for the classroom as well as for the actor training to capture the magic of Dickens, whether in an audition, on the movie screen, or on the stage.
