Dr Marigold and Mr Chops

HONORARY patron of the Theatre Royal Brighton and one of the country’s most celebrated actors Simon Callow will be staring in two one-man plays by Charles Dickens next week.

Simon Callow takes to the stage at the Theatre Royal Brighton in Dr Marigold and Mr Chops.

The production which enjoyed a sell out run in London will visit Brighton from Monday October 24 until Saturday October 29.

In this captivating theatrical event, he tells the stories of Dr Marigold, a travelling salesman who adopts a little deaf and dumb girl and Mr Chops, a freak-show turn who wins the lottery and a place in society.

Simon Callow is a virtuoso storyteller who has already presented the life of Britain’s greatest novelist in The Mystery of Charles Dickens in both the West End and on Broadway.

He recently played Pozzo in Waiting for Godot and has starred in the Oscar-winning films A Room with a View, Howard’s End, Four Weddings and a Funeral and Shakespeare in Love.

Dr Marigold & Mr Chops is adapted by Patrick Garland.

These masterpieces, which were hugely popular when Dickens himself performed them on his famed reading tours, provide a masterly blend of the comic, bizarre and poignant that is classic Dickens.

Tickets are priced at £13 - £27.
