WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Dickens' personality transcends his books and the characters explored in Dickens' Women were chosen not only because they are some of the most colourful and entertaining characters in Dickens' writing, but because they were based on real people in his life; people he fought with and cared for, loved and hated. In this way, the play is as much about the man himself, as it is about the twenty-three characters performed by Margolyes. These characters are drawn from his novels & sketches, including his most popular such as Oliver Twist, Great Expectations and Nicholas Nickleby. Some characters are famous & iconic, others are lesser-known creations from Dickens' books, but all offer a unique glimpse into the real-life Charles Dickens.
