The Arts Society Steyning January TalkMonday 8th January - 10:00 - 12:00The Arts Society SteyningThe Steyning Centre, Fletchers Croft, Steyning BN44 3XZCharles Dickens brought into the world a staggering array of wonderful characters – orphans, starving children, misers, murderers and abusive school teachers among them.
Mr Micawber, Fagin and Abel Magwitch, for example, remain in one’s literary psyche long after the books are put down.
Largely self-educated, Dickens became the greatest writer of his age producing 15 major novels and countless short stories and articles.
In this lecture Bertie looks at the life and places of Dickens through his characters. The talk is interspersed with readings of his works.
Bertie has a BA (Hons) in Drama from Manchester University, and a Diploma Internationale from the École Internationale du Théâtre, Jacques Lecoq.
A member of the Inner Magic Circle, with Gold Star, Bertie has toured the world with a magic cabaret show and a one man show entitled All Aboard
He has written articles for newspapers and magazines on entertainment and theatre.
