Written in 1854, Hard Times is Dickens’ most passionately political work. In Coketown, callous businessmen Thomas Gradgrind and Josiah Bounderby have created a logical, heartless world regulated by measurable facts and data and at the expense of joy and imagination. While these monsters prosper, children endure a cold and loveless life. But their unhappy world is transformed when Sleary’s circus comes to town….

“ There is a love in the world. It’s not all self interest after all, but something very different…”

This is a compelling tale of cold hearts and blazing humanity. Dickens’ masterful language, clear moral insight and vibrant colourful characters come to life in this many-layered theatrical tour de force – it seemed an irresistible tale for this day and age.
