As part of this year's celebrations for the bicentenary of Charles Dickens, Miriam Margolyes reprises her acclaimed Olivier Award-nominated production, Dickens' Women.
Portraying over 23 of his best-loved characters, from doe-eyed young heroines to brow-beating old harridans, Miriam, together with her audience, sets out to discover Dickens himself.
Revealing the raucous humour of his characterisations and the darker, more sinister aspects of his life and work, Dickens' Women is a funny, moving, affectionate and informative show for everyone, whether familiar with Dickens' writing or just discovering him.
BAFTA Award-winning Miriam Margolyes is described as one of Britain's most compelling character actresses. Her extensive stage and film credits include Professor Sprout in the Harry Potter films, Martin Scorsese's The Age of Innocence, Baz Luhrmann's Romeo and Juliet, Little Dorrit, Blackadder, Complicite's Endgame and the West End smash-hit Wicked.
