Our Mutual Friend
Translation and adaptation of 'Our Mutual Friend' (1865) written by Charles Dickens (England, 1812-1870). A whodunit where no one is who they say they are, a kaleidoscope of fascinating figures, a vigorous indictment of what money does to us. Charles Dickens is eccentric, furious in his social commitment, harsh and exceptionally humorous.

"Have a guess. Which is the odd one out?
Rubbish dumps and a misty river.
Money and violence.
Suspicion and madness.
Love and passion."
