Drama King - Brighton Fringe 2020


Sweet Werks - Werks 2
Theatre

This compelling one-man show by Mark Stratford charts the life and times of William Charles Macready, one of the greatest actor-managers of the 19th Century. With humour, drama, emotion and an array of characters, Stratford takes us on Macready's journey from his first tentative steps in a rough country theatre to his final triumphant performance at the mighty Drury Lane. The story of Macready - a First Player in the line of Burbage, Garrick, Kean and Irving and the man to whom Charles Dickens dedicated 'Nicholas Nickleby' - is one of the most remarkable ever to come out of the Theatre.
