A hilarious and revealing conversation between two quirky, fascinating, and completely different men.
"Intelligent and imaginative... the playwright's ability to offer an enormous amount of information in a light and humorous manner... keeps the audience blissfully entertained while they're actually learning plenty... If you are a fan of Carroll and Dickens you will certainly love this play. If you are not, you will be a fan thereafter."Dena Burroughs, Examiner.com
"You don't have to be interested in 19th century British literature to appreciate the play's odd-couple jousting and emotional poignancy."Deborah Klugman, LA Weekly
"Beautifully appointed two-hander about the authors of Great Expectations and Alice's Adventures in Wonderland... Perfectly scrumptious."David C. Nichols, LA Times
A Perfect Likeness Script
Reclusive writer and photographer Charles Dodgson (also known as "Lewis Carroll") invites celebrity author Charles Dickens to his Oxford home to pose for a portrait. Dickens is so intrigued by the whimsical Alice's Adventures in Wonderland that he accepts. What ensues is a baring of two creative souls, the one private and fastidious, the other boisterous and irreverent. As Dodgson struggles to capture a "perfect likeness" of Dickens, Dickens craftily pries into Dodgson's personal life to get a handle on one of the most curious men he has ever met. The result is a hilarious and revealing conversation between two quirky, fascinating, and completely different men.
