Hard Times

Hard TimesT0745261322
Hard Times the Musical tells of a travelling circus and its impact on a society where love and imagination are considered of no value. Featuring Dickens' most ebullient comic characters, this satire is as fresh, sharp and funny as it ever was. Hard Times, a major musical, uses melodrama, music hall, pantomime, operetta and circus acts to emulate the Dickensian manner of story telling.
Book by Charles Dickens
