Charles Dickens & Wilkie Collins – A Writing Bromance

When Wilkie Collins was recruited into Charles Dickens’ amateur theatre group in 1851, they at once took to each other.
Dickens at 39 years old was in need of a good time, and Collins at 27, was the man who could provide that much needed excitement.
Wilkie Collins and Charles Dickens were friends for 20 years. In a friendship that lasted until the death of Dickens in 1870, Jak Stringer will reveal the stories behind: kite flying trips to Paris, Vesuvius in clouds of sulphurous smoke, coastal walks in Cornwall - and the women they loved.
“Can I suggest, five days of amiable dissipation and unbounded licence in the Metropolis?”– Charles Dickens 1855.
