Barnaby Rudge

 "NTC's productions may be small-scale and done on a shoestring but they are backed by a team which can match anything done by much bigger theatres" - The Guardian.

Set against a backdrop of the Gordon riots of 1780. Charles Dickens' story of mystery and suspense begins with an unsolved double murder, and goes on to involve conspiracy, blackmail, abduction and retribution. It even features Grip, a talking pet raven. Through the course of the play fathers and sons become opposed, apprentices plot against their masters and there are violent clashes on the streets. And, as London erupts into riot, Barnaby Rudge struggles to escape the curse of his own past. With its high drama, strange secrets and ghostly doublings, Barnaby Rudge is a powerfu blend of historical realism and 'grotesque' melodrama.
