Best of Times: The Theatre of Charles Dickens


Resource Type: 
Online Exhibition

Dickens's passion for the theater began in his childhood; his influence upon the theater continues today. Best of Times: The Theatre of Charles Dickens is illustrated with rare 19th-century broadsides, prints, posters, photographs, programs, and the original, annotated promptbooks used by Dickens during his vastly popular public readings. The exhibition highlights Dickens as performer, as playwright, and as the author upon whose works countless adaptations for the theater have been based.
