Irritable, generous, depressed, witty and wise – meet Samuel ‘Dictionary’ Johnson: poet, essayist and lexicographer.

In a charming show of stories and conversation celebrating Johnson’s unique take on life, Ian Redford reprises his acclaimed performance as the 18th century icon. Russell Barr plays a host of characters from James Boswell and Joshua Reynolds to King George III and Bonnie Prince Charlie’s saviour Flora Macdonald.

Trudie Styler appears as Mrs Thrale, the society hostess who was Johnson’s final, unrequited love.
