This compelling show - written and performed by Mark Stratford - tells the story of the great Victorian actor-manager, Macready - the man to whom Charles Dickens dedicated Nicholas Nickleby.

A must for drama fans, this remarkable true tale captures the sheer joy, graft, and tribulations (!) of a life lived in theatre.

With passion, humour, emotion, and an array of characters, Stratford takes us on a journey through the fascinating world of Victorian theatre and the extraordinary, yet conflicted life of Macready, from his first tentative steps on stage in a tatty country theatre to his final ever performance at the mighty Drury Lane!
