9781445879178: Dickens' Women

Miriam Margolyes (Professor Sprout in the Harry Potter films) sparkles and delights in her one-woman show where she plays 23 different roles - men and women - from Dickens' books. Through them she tells the story of Dickens' life, using his characters like Miss Haversham, Little Nell, and Mr and Mrs Bumble. Most were based on real people, like Mary Hogarth (Dickens' wife's sister) who was the inspiration for many of Dickens' young heroines. Dickens' Women is a tribute both to Miriam's infectious passion for Dickens' work and her astonishing versatility as a performer. Miriam earned an Olivier nomination for her original West End season of Dickens' Women, and toured the world in 2012, the 200th anniversary of Dickens' birth, with her one-woman show.

She has also won Performer of the Year at the Talkies Awards. Miriam has presented the BBC documentary Dickens in America and created the role of Madam Morrible in the hit West End musical Wicked.

From AudioFile:

Miriam Margolyes is one of the finest narrators in the business today. She has a particular flair for Dickens, which she proved on London and American stages in her witty, informed and brilliantly acted monologue, DICKENS'S WOMEN. Margolyes has Dickens's verbal/visual personality down pat and breathes memorable, credible life into each of his many caricatures. One sees the story rather than hears it. She not only communicates the Dickensian world, but convinces us that it is a real world, full of vivid, breathing souls whom we can't help loving, hating, admiring and especially fretting over. Margoyles shows her brilliant rapport with an audience as DICKENS'S WOMEN was taped live in London The package quotes a London critic who calls the show "absolute magic." An understatement. Y.R. An AudioFile Earphones Award winner. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
