Charles Dickens's much loved classic has been brought to life in a wonderful new version by Alan Stanford. Nell Trent lives with her doting grandfather in his London shop, a magical place filled with dust-laden treasures. What is the secret of Grandfather's mysterious night wandering? Why does he borrow so much from the evil money lender Quilp? As they run from the clutches of Quilp, the pair fall in with a number of colourful characters, some villainous, some affectionate. Quilp, however, is not a man to be trifled with, something they are all about to find out the hard way. The Old Curiosity Shop runs at The Gate Theatre from December 3rd until January 31st. Tickets are priced between €25 and €34.
