Gad's Hill

In 1857, Danish fairy tale writer Hans Christian Andersen spent five weeks as the houseguest of Charles Dickens. By the end of Andersen's stay, Dickens wanted nothing to do with his bizarre guest and refused to answer any of his many, many letters. Nobody knows exactly what went sour between these two literary geniuses.

 

Gad's Hill is a piece of musical theatre which plunges deep into the lives and minds of those two men to ask what went wrong and how deeply their souls were shaken from the encounter.
