galia, Williams will present a solo
theatrical performance of scenes
from such favorites as "A Tale of
Two Cities," "Dombey and Son,"
"Pickwick .Papers," "Christmas
Stories" and "Our Mutual Friend."
HIS IMPERSONATION of Dick-
ens is complete to the last detail,
from the fantail beard to the but-
toniere.
The desk before which he will
stand when he recreates the
Dickens' personages is an exact
replica of the "Reading Desk"
once used by the author for his
readings.
The original desk, designed by
Dickens, was copied in detail for
Williams, with a raised rest for
the left arm and a low ledge for
the water-glass and the inevitable
white gloves.
