Dickens in America - a performance by Howard Burnham 

The Carmel Residents’ Association presents actor-writer Howard Burnham’s characterization of Charles Dickens as he completes his second tour of the United States. At a dinner at Delmonico’s, the inimitable Boz recounts his life story with special emphasis on his two visits to America, the first in 1842 being something of a disaster, compensated by his second triumphant return in 1867.

BIO  - Howard Burnham offers this great performance with this background.  Howard was born and raised in England, but claims American blood from his Californian grandfather. He took honors in Modern History at University College, Durham, and worked as an educator and actor in England and South Carolina, where he was noted for his portrayal of Lord Cornwallis and other Revolutionary War characters for the National Park Service. Since moving to Pacific Grove in 2013, he has performed regularly with PacRep in Carmel.

BIO - Charles Dickens (1812 –1870) was an English writer and social critic. He created some of the world's best-known fictional characters and is regarded by many as the greatest novelist of the era – with his novels and short stories still widely read today. (e.g. Oliver Twist, Nicholas Nickleby, A Christmas Carol, David Copperfield, A Tale of Two Cities, Great Expectations…to name a few) Born in Portsmouth, Dickens left school to work in a factory when his father was incarcerated in a debtors' prison. Despite his lack of formal education, he edited a weekly journal for 20 years, wrote 15 novels, five novellas, hundreds of short stories and non-fiction articles, lectured and performed readings extensively, was an prolific letter writer, and campaigned vigorously for children's rights, education, and other social reforms.
