In Coketown, callous businessmen Thomas Gradgrind and Josiah Bounderby have created a logical, heartless world. While these monsters prosper, children endure a cold and loveless life. But their unhappy world is transformed when Sleary’s circus comes to town…. From the company who brought you Aberystwyth Mon Amour, Lighthouse brings its unique theatrical style to this compelling tale of cold hearts and blazing humanity. Dickens’ masterful language, clear moral insight and vibrant colourful characters come to life in this many-layered theatrical tour de force.
“ There is a love in the world, not all self-interest after all, but something very different…” “ Captures the volume of suppressed anger in the text, a passion whose delicate control makes a thriller out of mawkishness.” Independent
