Production details

Red Shift's production of Nicholas Nickleby breathes fresh life into Dickens' classic story. Retaining the wit and wisdom of the novel, the production is by turns hilarious and deeply moving. It relocates Nicholas's adventures to Britain in the 1950s; the story-tellers are a spectral ensemble - ghosts of Ralph and Squeers' past victims. This framing gives the story a dramatic drive and a sharp contemporary resonance and rediscovers the punch that made Dickens famous in his time as a serious social commentator as well as a master storyteller.
