Andersen's English /
|Main Creator:||Barry, Sebastian, 1955-|
Celebrated children's writer Hans Christian Andersen arrives, unannounced, for a stay at Gad's Hill Place in the Kent marshes -- home to Charles Dickens and his large, charismatic family. To the lonely and eccentric guest, the members of Dickens' household seem to live a life of unreachable bliss. But with his broken English, Andersen doesn't at first see the storms brewing within the family: undeclared passions, a son about to go to India, and a growing strangeness at the heart of Dickens' marriage.
"Andersen's English was first performed at the Theatre Royal, St. Edmund's on 11 February 2010 in a co-production between Out of Joint and Hampstead Theatre." -- title page.
