Two weeks until the show

Hi it’s our first post on this page. So what is Off Book?

Well very quickly we’re a group of actors. We are currently preparing for the first performance of a brand new theatre show. It’s called Dickens, Drood and the Best of Tomes.
The play follows Charles Dickens as he works on his latest (destined to be his last) book: The Mystery of Edwin Drood. Facing numerous distractions, Dickens is also preparing for his famous farewell tour.

In Rehearsal – Ian Nenna and Fiona Angwin

So, what all of that means is that Myself, Fiona Angwin and Ian Nenna are creating 29 characters between us. We’re showcasing moments from some of the best loved of Dickens’ work. I won’t lie it’s great fun rehearsing at the moment.

If the posts that appear here seem interesting please go to or and consider buying a ticket to see the first ever performance of the script at Melrose Hall, Hoylake as part of the Wirral Festival of Firsts 2012. We are on Tuesday 3rd July at 7:30pm. The tickets are priced at a very reasonable £6 and refreshments will be available during the interval.
