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
