Nicholas Nickleby (Part Two) archiveScenes of tragedy alternate with scenes of melodrama and farce. Cheer Nicholas, as he triumphs in the face of adversity...gasp at the ruin of his villainous uncle...weep over the death of Smike... Performed by a company of 27 actors, David Edgar’s new version of Nicholas Nickleby is presented across two performances, combining to create an experience of rare scope and genuine scale. There are opportunities to experience this exhilarating spectacle, afternoon and evening, all in one day. The ebullient narrative follows Nicholas, left penniless on the death of his father, as he escapes the influence of his villainous Uncle Ralph and the tyrannical schoolmaster Wackford Squeers and embarks on a thrilling journey through 1830s’ England. Dickens’ genius for creating eccentric, exuberant and captivating characters is brought vividly to life in this action-packed epic as theatrical spectacle and genuine big-heartedness flawlessly combine.
