Nicholas Nickleby

“The task was to 'get back to what we had before'. Napier went back to his original plans, raided the RSC for props and furniture and tried to figure out a way to make his set more portable, without losing it's heavy, primitive, lashed-together look.”

Nicholas Nickleby Review

John Napier's set design for this revival (from his original design with Demot Hayes ) is an astounding complex of wooden walkways and a central bridge tacked together with iron gates and grillwork that wraps its way around the theatre and into the audience.
