Heralded as one of the supreme Victorian novelists (or simply of all time you may say), and the creator of an abundance of memorable fictional characters, Charles Dickens still reaches deep into our literary consciousness. Harnessing her love of the writer, Miriam Margolyes’ one-woman showcase, Dickens’ Women, provides an exposé of the man and his writings by analysing his female characters. Margolyes throws herself into each role, bringing to life 23 of Dickens’ most colourful women. With a kind of ferocious delight, she exhibits her chameleon-esque qualities and switches from character to character. Her passion for the subject, as enthralling and engaging as the man himself, reignites a love of Dickensian literature and reveals how large an influence his work has on contemporary drama.
