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.
