The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby

Jenny Wren Productions presents The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby featuring the reprehensible Uncle Ralph, on Friday, August 11 at Cerney House Gardens in North Cerney, Cirencester.

The performance begins at 7pm, the café is open from 5.30pm, along with the gardens for picnics.

As the performance is in the open-air, you are advised to bring a blanket or chair.

Left destitute on the death of their father, the Nickleby family is 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 an open-air venue near you, hot off the heels of their smash-hit national tour of Little Women and last summer's A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Acclaimed for their fast-paced, imaginative, and zany interpretations, Jenny Wren Productions bring their inimitable style to this Dickens classic, perfect for a summer evening's entertainment!

Tickets are £15 for adults and £10 for under 16s, available from the Everyman Theatre box office or online.
