From one of Charles Dickens' most beloved novels comes some of his most unforgettable characters, vibrantly brought to life by a star-studded, award winning cast. In Nicholas Nickleby, young Nicholas and his family have enjoyed a comfortable life - but then again, this is Dickens. Nicholas' father dies, the family is left penniless, and Nicholas, his sister, and mother venture to London to seek help from their Uncle Ralph. Unfortunately, Ralph's only intentions are to break up the family and exploit them, and Nicholas is sent to work at a school run by the cruel and abusive Wackford Squeers.
