The Touring Consortium Theatre Company, who most recently brought Of Mice And Men, A View
From The Bridge and Brave New World to Darlington Civic Theatre are now working in partnership

The new adaptation of the Charles Dickens novel by Mike Poulton will feature a cast of approximately 30 local actors alongside a professional production team led by director Eduard Lewis.
