Description

"MY DEAREST KATE" PERFORMS IN GODALMING TO RAISE MONEY FOR AGE UK SURREY

"My Dearest Kate" dramatises the story of Catherine and Charles Dicken's turbulent marriage and separation, seen through genuine letters exchanged between herself and Charles.

The story of their marriage is the focus of the play by Ellie Dickens which is being performed on Saturday 10th June at The Wilfred Noyce Centre in Godalming from 2.00pm (doors open 1.30pm).

Marianne Gaston plays Catherine and toured in New Zealand in the original one woman production. David Hoffman plays Charles in this exciting new Small Spaces Theatre Company adaptation, with moments of touching humour. "My Dearest Kate" written in 1983 by Ellie Dickens has been adapted, with her blessing and consent, from a one woman monologue into this exciting entertaining two actor production.

They were engaged in 1835, married the next year in London at St Luke's Church, Chelsea and legally separated, but never divorced in 1858. After having had 10 children, Charles forced Catherine to leave their home alledging she was mentally disordered and unfit as a wife and mother. On her deathbed Catherine requested that her collection of the letters from Charles were given to The British Museum so that the world would know her story and the Charles she knew.

Tickets priced at £10.00 (adult) and £5 (under 14’s) are available from Record Corner in Godalming (cash or cheque only) or from Eventbrite (transaction fee applies - £11.21 Adult and £5.90 under 14's) www.eventbrite.co.uk.
