In this title BAFTA[registered] award-winning actress Miriam Margolyes performs her one-woman tour-de-force. Miriam Margolyes (Professor Sprout in the "Harry Potter" films) sparkles and delights in her one-woman show where she plays 23 different roles - men and women - from Dickens' books. Through them she tells the story of Dickens' life, using his characters like Miss Haversham, Little Nell, and Mr and Mrs Bumble. Most were based on real people, like Mary Hogarth (Dickens' wife's sister) who was the inspiration for many of Dickens' young heroines. Dickens' Women is a tribute both to Miriam's infectious passion for Dickens' work and her astonishing versatility as a performer. Miriam earned an Olivier nomination for her original West End season of "Dickens' Women", and she is set to tour the world in 2012, the 200th anniversary of Dickens' birth, with her one-woman show. "Absolute magic". ("Daily Telegraph" (tour review)).show more
