Gerald Dickens | Sikes and Nancy

Victorian theater at its most dramatic, Sikes and Nancy illuminates one of the darkest moments in a Charles Dickens tale: the murder of Nancy Sikes in Oliver Twist. In what he called his Farewell Tour of Britain in 1868, Dickens first presented a passionate reading of this pivotal scene, and it was rumored that he judged the evening’s success by the number of audience faintings. Gerald Dickens, a great-great-grandson of Charles, created his first one-man theatrical performance of A Christmas Carol in 1993, and has since written and performed solo versions of Mr. Dickens is Coming!, Nicholas Nickleby, and Sketches by Boz. He performs in theaters around the world, and has appeared in documentaries for the BBC and ITV.
