"David Edgar, like Balzac, seems to be the secretary for our times" (Guardian)






Nicholas Nickleby: "With uncommon audacity Nicholas Nickleby not only takes on Dickens' sprawling novel, it fractures all the petty limitations we have imposed upon the stage as well...A landmark" (New Statesman); In Entertaining Strangers, a community constructs a nativity play: "English left-wing social drama at its sturdiest and finest: human, argumentative, utterly unafraid of human realities, and seething with indignation and compassion" (Sunday Times) and Ecclesiastes, a radio play that looks at the rise and fall of a "fundamentalist" Christian clergyman in the US.

Love, sex and money, poverty and exploitation, hope and despair: Dicken's world is vividly brought to life in David Edgar's adaptation of his 1838 novel. The Times, Sam Marlowe, 10/12/2007
