A dramatised reading of “Doctor Marigold” by Charles Dickens, much as Dickens himself performed it to audiences in Britain and America. The story is narrated by a Cheap Jack, who loses his only daughter, but finds happinesses again when he adopts a young deaf and dumb girl. It is one of Dickens’s most moving tales, veering from comedy to pathos. Guaranteed to make grown men cry.Views: 582 | Enquiries: 0
I took early retirement in 2010, having previously spent a career in IT, Quality Assurance and Process Improvement, latterly with Vodafone UK at their headquarters in Newbury, Berkshire. I have subsequently taken up a second career as a public speaker/performer, and have now delivered over 800 talks/performances.
My talks are predominantly based on literary figures and topics.
I am willing to give talks/performances to groups in Surrey, Hampshire, West Sussex and South Berkshire.
I am now able to give my talks/performances on-line via Zoom.
