Details

Described as one of the greatest one-woman shows of all time and nominated for the Olivier Award for Best Entertainment, Dickens' Women gives audiences the unique opportunity to witness the extraordinary passion and talent of Miriam Margolyes, as she brings a rich assortment of Charles Dickens' best loved characters to life. Britain's most compelling character actress pays homage some of English literature's most iconic women, including Mrs. Micawber from David Copperfield, Miss Havisham in Great Expectations and the grotesque Mrs. Gramp from Martin Chuzzlewit. Driven by startling insight, Miriam Margolyes uses 23 of Dickens' female creations to explore the man himself, revealing everything from the raucous humour of his characterisations to the darker, more sinister aspects of his life and work. Ages 12+
