(as adapted by David Edgar and The Royal Shakespeare Company)
“Scenes from The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby”
(a workshop in character acting)
The Dickens Dramatic Reading Society
(Limited to veterans of YSP who have been in at least two Shakespeare plays and one language-based Focused Workshop, and adults.)
- A Tale of Two Cities
- Bleak House
NEW in 2011: Our Mutual Friend
