A Dickens of a Christmas

A Dickens of a Christmas brings together drama, insight, and humor to tell the story of the influence Charles Dickens has had on our most celebrated holiday season. Professor Elliot Engel, ably assisted by the character-portrayal of actress Quinn Hawkesworth, provides an engrossing and little-known glimpse into our time-honored Christmas traditions. A Dickens of a Christmas is a holiday treat for the entire family, and will provide a deeper understanding of why we celebrate this season with the symbolism and traditions that we all know and love. It is filled with humorous and entertaining passages from various literary works and the dramatic and energized readings by Quinn Hawkesworth are sure to delight one and all.

Professor Engel is a scholar and performer whose infectious enthusiasm and radiant wit create an imaginative and delightful presentation.” 
Cedric Charles Dickens,
(Charles Dickens’ great-grandson)
