Encounter Kate and Ralph Nickleby, Wackford and Fanny Squeers, the Infant Phenomenon, Newman Noggs, Miss Knag, the Mantalinis, Miss La Creevy, Smike and a host of others, as we journey with Nicholas from Devonshire to a teeming London via Dotheboys Hall in Yorkshire and Vincent Crummles’ theatre troupe on tour in Portsmouth.

A comic masterpiece by one of our most theatrical of novelists, this landmark adaptation became an instant classic when it premiered in the 1980s. The Guildhall School celebrates the bicentenary of Dickens's birth with this new production.
