The highly acclaimed adaptation of Dickens's classic novel--a 2001 Jeff Award Winner!

The citizens of Charles Dickens's Coketown have moved readers for over a century. Now, Heidi Stillman's stunning adaptation brings these iconic characters to life on the stage, revealing the universality of their hopes and suffering in their times and in ours. The world premiere of Hard Times was presented by the Lookingglass Theatre Company of Chicago in 2001. The Play won five Joseph Jefferson Awards, for best production of a play, best director, best adaptation, best choreography, and best lighting design.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"It's a tribute not only to the glory of Dickens, but to the joy of theater." --Richard Christiansen, Chicago Tribune

"Remaining remarkably faithful to her source, [Stillman] ... achieves gorgeous heights of stagecraft." --Chicago Reader

"Heidi Stilman--in her finest, most nuanced work as both adapter and director--has crafted a show of tremendous grace and heart, darkness and light. She has brought to life a Victorian-era epic that bursts with wit and whimsy, and all the outrage, hope, severity, and sentimentality of the novel." --Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times
