The Cricket on the Hearth
Adapted by Bruce G. Bradley from Charles Dickens
Directed by John Kremm
It is a story full of secrets and sacrifices set in pre-Victorian London at Christmas, as only Charles Dickens can provide. Mr. Bradley’s adaptation of the story brings to life characters who are as relatable as any in modern fiction, dealing with love and loss, deception and expediency, and basic human relationships.
