View Full Version : The Chichester Production

I whole-heartedly recommend seeing the current Chichester Festival Theatre production of Nicholas Nickleby. The book adaption (which was first played at the National ten years ago to great acclaim) has been shortened from the National version, but still extends over two shows.
The acting is superb, the whole production is magnificent in my opinion, and for anyone who enjoys the variety, humour, and pathos of Dickensian characters this is a must-see. The play has some 100 characters, tackled by a cast of 23 which stretches credibility a bit at times but doesn't detract at all from the sheer enjoyment which is on show.
A truly memorable event.
