Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens (Part One) - A Two Bins Production

“If it’s burglary or pocket-picking, that needs apprenticeship. No so murder – we’re all of us up to that.”

Charles Dickens’ last completed novel is part love story, part thriller - an epic tale of murder, greed, and obsession. John Harmon, heir to a family fortune, is mistaken for dead. His father’s money passes to the working-class Boffins, and the effects spread into various corners of London society.

Directed by Martin Nichols, adapted by Franklyn McCabe, and designed by Victoria Johnstone, this show is a revival of the much-loved production that took place in Brighton in the late 1990s. Given a two-part treatment by Brighton’s own Two Bins company, it features 18 actors playing around 40 roles.
