is regarded by many as the greatest novelist of the Victorian era. His works enjoyed unprecedented popularity during his lifetime, and by the 20th century critics and scholars had recognised him as a literary genius. His novels and short stories enjoy lasting popularity....Born in Portsmouth, Dickens left school to work in a factory when his father was incarcerated in a debtors' prison. Despite his lack of formal education, he edited a weekly journal for 20 years, wrote 15 novels, five novellas, hundreds of short stories and non-fiction articles, lectured and performed extensively, was an indefatigable letter writer, and campaigned vigorously for children's rights, education, and other social reforms.

For the initial production of this play, as well as for The Lighthouse, and the children's plays William Tell, Tom Thumb, and Fortunio and His Seven Gifted Servants, Dickens converted the house's large schoolroom into "The Smallest Theatre in the World."...' - Victorian Web
