Synopsis

David Edgar dramatizes Charles Dickens' novel as a two-part, eight-and-a-half-hour play, detailing the efforts of young, fatherless Nicholas to provide for his mother and sister, despite the obstacles provided by his distrusting uncle Ralph and Wackford Squeers, the odious schoolmaster who is his initial employer.
