Description

In 1865 Dickens wrote Doctor Marigold's Prescriptions, a short story, which turned out to be one of his most popular Christmas time readings. The Doctor is a market Cheap Jack (itinerant hawker of cheap goods), named in honor of a doctor who assisted at his birth. On the surface he is a trader with a rapid sales-patter, but underneath there lies a story both moving and heartbreaking. Gerald's performance of Doctor Marigold is a first for Riverside's audience.
