Drama King
    By Mark Stratford

    This compelling new solo show, written and performed by Mark Stratford, tells the story of William Charles Macready, one of the greatest actor-managers of the 19th Century. The story of Macready - the man to whom Charles Dickens dedicated "Nicholas Nickleby" - is one of the most remarkable ever to come out of the Theatre. With humour, drama, emotion, and an array of characters, Stratford takes us through the highlights of Macready’s life including his first tentative steps on stage in a tatty country theatre to his final ever performance at the mighty Drury Lane.
