For a nearly cinematic listening experience, check out the award-winning BBC audio adaptation of Little Dorrit. The great Sir Ian McKellan leads a dramatic cast as author Charles Dickens, narrating the story of the unfortunate Dorrit family and the life they make for themselves inside London’s notorious Marshalsea Prison. From the opening strains of music and the last words of a dying man, “Do not forget,” we are transported to another time and place. Sweet Little Amy Dorrit captures our hearts, while hers belongs to Arthur Clennam, a good man with a troubling family. Filled with the distinct characters and gentle satire for which Dickens is known, Little Dorrit is a graceful tribute to the original beloved story.
