The Visit

World Premiere
Based on an extraordinary true story

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The year is 1857. The great Charles Dickens had invited the equally great Hans Christian Andersen to come and stay with him ten years previously. Andersen, known for his spontaneity, suddenly turned up on his doorstep almost without warning and a very poor grasp of the English language. This sets the stage for a whole string of monumental gaffs, misunderstandings and odd adventures. The man who came to visit for a few days finally left for Denmark after six weeks leaving in his wake a family divided and nervous breakdowns on both sides. Andersen coined the phrase ’To travel is to live.’ Dickens might have been inspired by his visit to write his famous line ’It was the best of times, it was the worst of times’.
