Charles Dickens’s prompt copy, ‘The Story of Little Dombey’
Dickens was a brilliant performer and acted in sell-out readings of his works for the last twenty years of his life. For these readings he used special prompt copies of his works, full of notes, stage directions and edits. In this video we take a closer look at the prompt copy for ‘The Story of Little Dombey’, one of his best-loved one-man shows.
