* BoardingSchoolOfHorrors

* BoardingSchoolOfHorrorsBoardingSchoolOfHorrors: Dotheboys Hall is one of the most famous examples in all of literature. The boys at the school are starved, regularly beaten, made to do menial physical labour, and given only the barest rudiments of an education (impaired by the Squeers family's own BookDumb nature). Tragically, some of the boys either can no longer remember their lives outside the school or actually view it as a step up from where they were previously, and after Dotheboys is forcibly shut down in the wake of Wackford Squeers' imprisonment, they don't want to leave.



* ChewingTheScenery: In the 1980 stage play, the Crummles's production of {{Romeo and Juliet}} is actually performed, [[CrowningMomentofFunny with hilarious results]]. Made even better since it was a parody of the Victorian era habit to {{bowdlerise}} WilliamShakespeare.

The novel spawned several film and television adaptations, including one in 2002 with {{Anne Hathaway}} and Nathan Lane, among others. It also was adapted into an incredibly faithful, 8.5 ''hour'' long stage production by the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1980. For those interested, that one can be watched [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IieU_CjJK6w here]].
