What is it?
Publick Transport presents Very Hard Times.
What happens when a hard-working, honest man can no longer afford to keep his wife in the style to which she has become accustomed and is forced to accept an offer from the landlord he cannot refuse? A reinterpretation of Dickens’ classic so breathtakingly radical that it bears no resemblance to the original whatsoever. Tackling the thorny issue of economic hardship with the mangled secateurs of melodrama, it takes us on an emotionally exhausting journey featuring greed, lust and the odd song & dance number, through theatrical incompetence, petty squabbles and nervous breakdowns! Be horrified as the villain charges at the heroine! Be relieved as the hero charges at the villain! Be slightly confused as the heroine charges at the hero!
