The nightmarish world of Dotheboys Hall from Nicholas Nickleby is brought to vivid life for a modern class of rebellious students in this highly original pop adaptation of Charles Dickens' celebrated novel.
An English teacher leads his class in a dramatic re-creation of the story of Nicholas, his friend Smike, and the tyrannical headmaster, Mr. Squeers, to teach them a lesson about learning, standing together, and good fellowship.
