Full of wit, warmth, and even goblin attendants, The Chimes returns to Remy Bumppo for the first time since 2013 – this time virtually and on-demand – just in time for the holiday season. In this one-person show, Artistic Director Nick Sandys portrays Charles Dickens and his whole array of lively characters as the story builds towards the dawning of New Year’s Day. Experience this classic Dickensian holiday tale during this Scrooge-like year, all from the safety and comfort of your home.
The Chimes by Charles Dickens tells the story of Toby “Trotty” Veck. Trotty is visited on New Year’s Eve by goblins to help restore his faith and show him that nobody is born evil, but rather that crime and poverty are things created by man.
