In 1993, I created my first one-man show, a theatrical performance of "A Christmas Carol" inspired by Charles Dickens’ own energetic readings of the 1860s.

A fascination with the life and works of Charles led me to write and direct further one-man shows including "Mr Dickens is Coming!," "Nicholas Nickleby" and "Great Expectations," "The Signalman," and "Doctor Marigold." I regularly perform in major theatres and arts centres as well as at hotels and stately homes, such as Highclere Castle.

In 2021, I published my first book, ‘Dickens and Staplehurst. A Biography of a Rail Crash’. I am currently working on a second book about my life in the theatre.

I'm Gerald Dickens — actor, director, producer and great-great grandson of Charles Dickens.

Thanks for signing up!




"Among the myriad versions of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” that pop up each Christmas, this one is different in two ways. One: Gerald Charles Dickens, who plays all 26 characters in the cautionary 1843 tale, is the author’s great-great-grandson. Two: His performance is twirlingly, leapingly physical, the antithesis of a “reading” of the work."


"Dickens commands stage in world premiere 'To Begin With.'
