Barnums circus rushing through the dusty plains of Missouri to the bustle and noise of packed theatres in New York, The Snake-Oil Dickens Man is the moving story of a young mans loss of innocence in the search for his father. It is 1867 and Billy Talbot has been told that he is the illegitimate son of the great author, Charles Dickens.

Billys journey is thick with tricks, disguises and chance meetings that lead him to Hope Scattergood, a consumptive charlatan with his own interest in the great writer. Together Scattergood and Billy devise the Dickens Lay, a con that may lead Billy to a meeting with his father, the real Charles Dickens.
