Outside Events, Jenny Wren Productions

The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby

Vincent Crummles’ Acting Company or rather, JENNY WREN PRODUCTIONS – present…

The Life and Adventures of NICHOLAS NICKLEBY


The reprehensible Uncle Ralph
The despicable Wackford Squeers
“The Infant Phenomenon” Ninetta Crummles
not forgetting Nicholas Nickleby himself
his unfortunate friend, Smike
And many more of Dickens’ most weird and wonderful characters 

Left destitute on the death of their father, the Nickleby family are forced to give up a life of contentment in the countryside. The ensuing adventures take Nicholas all over, from Devon to Dotheboys Hall in Yorkshire, via a chance encounter with a troupe of strolling players. This is a tale of twists and turns, ups and downs, cruelty and hardship, but also friendship, kindness and love.

Will Uncle Ralph get his comeuppance? Will there be romance along the way? Will Smike remember all his lines?

Find out, by catching Jenny Wren Productions at a beautiful open-air venue near you, hot off the heels of their national tour of Little Women and last summer’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Happiness is a gift and the trick is not to expect it, but to delight in it when it comes.”

In the open-air – please bring a blanket or chair.
