Read the review from the Sunday Herald Sun
Miriam Margolyes portrays over 23 of Dickens’ best-loved characters, from doe-eyed young heroines to brow-beating old harridans. In a stunning demonstration of versatility and acting performance, Miriam Margolyes, together with her audience, sets out to discover the man himself, revealing everything from the raucous humour of his characterisations to the darker, more sinister, aspects of his life and work.
