"Bartlett's adaptation... enfolds the issues in a rich texture, characteristically theatrical, but precludes any escapism into a mere emotional journey." - British Theatre Guide
About the Author
"Neil Bartlett is one of his generation's most respected and innovative theatre directors. His highly individual translations of French and German classical theatre, and charcteristically theatrical adaptations of Dickens, most of them originated while he was Artistic Director of the Lyric Hammersmith in London, have been played around the world. His plays have premiered at the Royal Court, at the Manchester International Festival and at the National Theatre in London. "
