The Ghosts of Mr Dickens

The year is 1867 and, aboard the SS Cuba, Charles Dickens sets sail for his second tour of America.

During his journey across the Atlantic, the author becomes plagued with guilt-ridden visions and visitors from the spirit world. Figures from his life – such as his parents, his wife, his companions and his children – appear alongside characters from his stories. These spirits return to guide (and taunt) him.

As reality blurs into fiction, the author is compelled to revisit the sins of his past. But this is no tale of redemption.
