A Perfect Likeness

A Perfect Likeness

at Connaught Theatre, Worthing

A rollicking Victorian odd-couple encounter between two titans of English literature!

The Connaught Theatre's resident company Conn Artists return with a UK premiere for 2021, following on from their hit tours of Silas Marner and The Four Men. A comedy by Daniel Rover Singer (Reduced Shakespeare Company)

Reclusive writer and photographer Charles Dodgson (AKA - Lewis Carroll) invites celebrity author Charles Dickens to his Oxford home to pose for a portrait. Dickens is so intrigued by the whimsical Alice's Adventures in Wonderland that he accepts.

What ensues is a baring of two creative souls, the one private and fastidious, the other boisterous and irreverent. As Dodgson struggles to capture a "perfect likeness" of Dickens, Dickens craftily pries into Dodgson's personal life to get a handle on one of the most curious men he has ever met. The result is a hilarious and revealing conversation between two quirky, fascinating, and completely different men.
