Nell Trent, a child-orphan of thirteen, must take care of her ailing grandfather. Dragged into debt by his dissolute grandson, he has turned, as a last resort, to the trollish loan shark, Daniel Quilp - one of Dickens’ most engagingly wicked and enduring characters.   This action results in Nell and her Grandfather on the run through England’s shady underbelly. Lowlifes chomp at their heels while their true friends attempt a rescue. In the end, balance is restored, albeit with a gut-wrenching twist.

The Old Curiosity Shop is one of the biggest selling books of all time and here is given a gripping adaptation by Simon Webb.   Stuffed to capacity with danger, hope, laughter, tears and a deep faith in people's fundamental goodness, The Old Curiosity Shop is a true Dickensian Odyssey, a powerful affirmation of the power of love.
