Bleak world of fear and malice
WHAT struck me most about this show, inspired from the novel, The Old Curiosity Shop, by Charles Dickens was its relevance to our society today.
We are all too familiar with efforts to help the poor – charities and food banks, virtually unheard of at the tail end of the last century, are now all too common.
Daniel Jamieson invites us into a bleak world of fear peppered with malice and greed.
The setting is a vintage record shop, owned by Grandpa who is tormented with debts that he is unable to pay. Grandpa, and little Nell his granddaughter, are forced to flee London and take to the road.

Curiosity Shop is a story filled with drama, mime and physical theatre at its best. Who better to deliver the goods than the story telling company Theatre Alibi. The cast are excellent.
However, the actor who turns this show into a farce, and is not afraid to use strong language, is Mr Quilp, the evil debt collector. He is viciously played by Derek Frood with a rage that cannot be conquered.
