So great was the impact of Dickens’ comic novel Nicholas Nickleby, many pirated versions appeared in print before the original was even finished! It was hailed as a comic triumph, combining Dickens’ classic elements of burlesque, satire and farce and firmly established Dickens as a ‘literary gentleman’.
With a full supporting cast of delicious characters including the iniquitous Wackford Squeers, the delightful Mrs Nickleby, and the eccentric Crummles and his travelling players, the novel is perfect for stage adaptions and we are excited to welcome performers from Momentum Productions to recreate their performance which had its premiere in London in 2016.
Momentum Productions are affiliated with South Staffordshire College, providing opportunities for current students and recent graduates to gain experience of live performance and theatre production.
