To mark the bicentenary of Charles Dickens' birth, London's West End presents The Mystery of Charles Dickens at the Playhouse Theatre. In an exhilarating one man show starring Simon Callow, the production sees 49 of Dickens' best loved characters come to life with recitals from Dickens himself.

 

About Playhouse Theatre

A short step away from the main strip of West End theatres, the Playhouse's stylish curved facade is rather lost among the towering architecture of Charing Cross and Embankment. If the exterior is a little too restrained however, the same cannot be said for the auditorium, which is a sumptuous tribute to theatrical excess. More about Playhouse Theatre
