As a special pre-Christmas treat we are delighted to present a world premiere! Melvyn Morrow, fresh from his work with Opera Australia and as co-author of SHOUT! and Dusty, takes us on a wonderful journey through the life and works of Charles Dickens, focussed around two of the novelist's sons who emigrated to Australia. Featuring a dash of history, all your favourite Dickensian characters and a superb selection of Victorian parlour ballads, this warm, witty and moving celebration will sell fast. Book now!
