Dickens - Pip Utton
All Kansas City Public Library locations will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 26, and will remain closed all day Thursday, November 27, for Thanksgiving.
British actor Pip Utton performs his one-man show about Charles Dickens, presenting the writer as a supremely contented man now that he has left his wife, taken up with his sister-in-law, and found a second career reading his works to enraptured audiences.
Described by The Daily Telegraph as “the doyen of the one-man show,” Utton’s solo performances recreate various historic characters and fictional figures, including characters from A Christmas Carol.
This event is co-sponsored by Kansas City Repertory Theatre, Unicorn Theatre, and Kansas City Actors Theatre.
