The Trials and Tribulations of Mr. Pickwick

Monday, 17 February 2014 to Saturday, 1 March 2014

'Nigel Nevinson brings his Edinburgh Fringe hit to The Adelaide Fringe. 
Everyone knows what Mr Pickwick looks like but how many people have read the book or know anything about Mr Pickwick's adventures?
See the eccentric characters that Mr Pickwick encounters on his journeys. Laugh at Mr Pickwick getting into farcical muddles which lead him to be tried for breach of promise of marriage. Also hear Mr Pickwick recount some of the horrors of Victorian England which lead him to change his philosophy on life. This play will please Dickens aficianados and people who come to discover one of his most famous novels.

 "The writing is intelligent, drinking deeply from the well of Dickens's own words - Highly Recommended,Fringe Review, Edinburgh'.


"Nigel Nevinson delivers a deft portrayal of multiple characters that is polished and entertaining. A wonderful way of becoming familiar with the background to a classic of English literature. Thoroughly enjoyed it". 4 STARS
Michael Coglin - Rip It Up
... the humour and bravado of the court scene is a rollicking piece, bound to entertain. Classic, if you’re in to that kind of stuff.
Jennifer Hullick - The Advertiser
The script is funny, warm, and clever, and Nevinson handles the material with great confidence and charm, an exceptionally good play performed brilliantly. FOUR STARS
