As part of this year’s celebrations for the bi-centenary of Charles Dickens, The University of Aberdeen is delighted to present award-winning actress Miriam Margolyes with her acclaimed Olivier Award-nominated production, 'Dickens’ Women.'
The performance is part of a year-long world tour that includes seasons at the Sydney Opera House, and New York’s legendary Morgan Library among others.
In this revisited production especially created for the Dickens 2012 celebrations, audiences have the unique opportunity to witness the extraordinary passion and talent of Miriam Margolyes as she portrays over 23 of Dickens’ best-loved characters, from doe-eyed young heroines and brow-beating old harridans, to men and midgets. In a stunning demonstration of versatility and acting performance, Miriam Margolyes, together with her audience, sets out to discover the man himself, revealing everything from the raucous humour of his characterisations to the darker, more sinister, aspects of his life and work.
Funny, moving, affectionate and informative, Dickens’ Women is a show for young and old alike whether they are familiar with Charles Dickens’ writing or are just discovering him.
