Welcome to my website, Solo Ventures.

I'm the actor Roger Gartland and Solo Ventures are my one man shows.

The first show is Readings from Dickens which are four of Charles Dickens’s own scripts he created from ‘Nicholas Nickleby’, ‘A Tale of Two Cities’, ‘Mr Chops, the Dwarf’, and ‘Oliver Twist’. The second show is Dickens’s own performing version of A Christmas Carol.

Each show lasts for two hours including interval. Technical needs are minimal: the shows can play in any arts centre, theatre or community hall. We offer A4 and A5 publicity with your venue’s details and the performance times.

I trained in rep. and was a National Theatre player for seven years. My c.v. includes theatre, film, radio, voice-overs and TV.
