The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens - Episode One - Into The Unknown

December 26, 2020

The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club (also known as The Pickwick Papers) was Charles Dickens's first novel. Because of his success with Sketches by Boz published in 1836 Dickens was asked by the publisher Chapman & Hall to supply descriptions to explain a series of comic "cockney sporting plates" by illustrator Robert Seymour and to connect them into a novel. The book became Britain's first real publishing phenomenon, with bootleg copies, theatrical performances, Sam Weller joke books, and other merchandise.

Our Kid and Me Productions have presented the audio play in nine episodes, commencing on Boxing Day, 26 December 2020 with the other eight episodes being release from January 2021 in two week intervals.
