Event description

Description

Callous businessmen Thomas Gradgrind and Josiah Bounderby have created a logical, heartless world.
While these monsters prosper, children endure a cold and loveless life. But their unhappy world is
transformed when Sleary’s circus comes to town…. The circus was frivolous and pointless when
assessed by the logic of fact, but in the end offers the only opportunity for the full expression of
human experience.
Stephen Jeffreys’ adaptation of Charles Dickens’ 1854 novel was commissioned for 4 actors by Pocket
Theatre Cumbria in 1982 and has gone on to have huge success, being performed by companies small and
large around the world. With four actors playing 20 roles as well as acting as narrators, the piece maintains a
sense of pace and drama as well as an exciting theatricality.
"A fluid adaptation…that is true to Dickens' language and spirit" (New York Times)
" The strength of this version... is its preservation of the satiric vitality of Dickens' original, and a real feel
for the superb rhetoric of his prose" (Time Out)

Tickets - £8.00 General Admission / £6.00 Concession (OAP/Disabled/Student/Child)
