Four actors. Nineteen Characters. One great story.
Folding Chair Classical Theatre Company presents Hard Times by Charles Dickens, adapted for the stage by Stephen Jeffreys. The play glimpses the lives of a cruel father, a drunken circus barker, a conniving servant, a thief, a Casanova...and a poor little orphan girl. These are just a few of the nineteen characters, portrayed by four actors, in Dickens' classic tale. This faithful adaptation follows the life of
Louisa Gradgrind, a beautiful young girl, married to old Mr. Bounderby: a
bully, a glutton, and the richest man in town. James Harthouse, a dashing
young man from London, tries to win Louisa's heart. But can a married
Victorian woman leave her husband to be with the man she loves?
