The Old Curiosity Shop
Wildly popular at the time of its publication, The Old Curiosity Shop is the story of Little Nell Trent, a young orphan who lives with her grandfather in his London curiosity shop until a turn of fortune forces them onto the street and into the English countryside to beg for food and shelter. Pursued by Dick Swiveller and Quilp, Nell and her grandfather find refuge in a remote village, but at considerable cost to Nell’s health.
The Old Curiosity Shop was originally published as a serial in 1841, generating unprecedented excitement around the fate of Nell and her grandfather. The Old Curiosity Shop has been adapted for film, television and the stage.
