Gillian shall be playing the role of Lady Dedlock.

Dickens' ninth novel was intended to illustrate the evils caused by long, drawn-out suits in the Courts of Chancery. Dickens had observed the inner workings of the courts as a reporter in his youth and observed that "The one great principle of the English law is to make business for itself". Bleak House is often considered Dickens' finest work although not his most popular. - David Perdue's Charles Dickens Home Page.
