An adaptation of Charles Dickens’ novel for one actor. The play illustrates the insane desire in the theatre to "fix" good stories by trying to make them all musicals. Alone in the kitchen of her New York City walk-up, determined playwright Jane Penmen proves that less is truly more. Meat & Potato Associate Producer, Enid Atkinson, played the role of Jane.
