The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby (Part One)

By Charles Dickens/David Edgar
Directed by Natalie Wilson

‘With uncommon audacity Nicholas Nickleby not only takes on Dickens’ sprawling novel, it fractures all the petty limitations we have imposed upon the stage as well…A landmark’. New Statesman

First performed by The Royal Shakespeare Company, at The Aldwych Theatre in 1980, David Edgar’s adaptation of Dicken’s classic novel proved a landmark in the history of British Theatre!
