Theatre Alibi with Exeter Northcott Theatre & Oxford Playhouse

Written by:  Charles Dickens


Nell Trent lives with her grandfather above The Curiosity Shop, a vintage record store.

When the shop is repossessed by a loan shark, Nell and Grandpa are forced to hit the road. Living rough they meet the usual suspects - con-men, good Samaritans, wide boys and buskers - in cities and villages across England.

Imaginatively translated to the present day, Dickens’ story of love, human frailty and downright wickedness has a fabulous cast of characters. Playfully staged featuring film and a soundtrack that takes in hits from Elvis Presley to Professor Green, CURIOSITY SHOP shows England to be as much a cultural curiosity shop as it ever was in Dickens’ day….

Theatre Alibi are fast becoming an audience favourite at the LBT having recently visited with Spies and The Crowstarver.

‘Theatre Alibi, Polka, Kneehigh and the Unicorn have been responsible for some of the most vital and innovative work in British theatre in recent years.’ MICHAEL MORPURGO

    Hi Robin,
    Not feeling too good so will have to give apologies for tonight. I know that I have paid for the ticket and you won't be able to get a refund, so if someone else wants to take my place that's fine. Perhaps my replacement might care to make a small donation to the group funds instead of paying for the ticket?

      Hi Helen, Sorry to hear that you're not well and that you'll miss the play tonight. There's no-one on the waiting list, but someone may read your comment and decide to come. Hope you feel better soon.
