Macready! Dickens’ Theatrical Friend
written and performed by Mark Stratford

This compelling show 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!

“Stratford’s remarkable ability to tell Macready’s story and create characters brings it all to life” **** (Broadway Baby)

“A fascinating and insightful production” **** (LondonTheatre1)

“What a performance! Mark Stratford truly becomes Macready” (Southwark News)
