This cool, elegant, emotionally punishing production reverses expectations as it expels cosy Dickensian theatricality. No wigs. No period frippery. Very few of Dickens' original words. Seven actors are set adrift in a sea of empty chairs and discarded shoes reminding us of the 'disappeared'. Expressionist lighting half illuminates a world of shadows and fakery.
