Great Expectations

About the Performance 

Am unsettling encounter with an escaped convict on the wild Kent marshes; a summons to meet the decaying Miss Havisham; the sudden appearance of a mystery benefactor – this series of events change the orphaned Pip’s life forever as he eagerly abandons his humble origins to become a gentleman.

From the misty marshes to the dusty, dirty streets of London; we bring you our brand new adaptation of Dickens’s most enduringly popular and atmospheric novel which delivers high comedy and dark drama as we follow Pip’s journey through adversity to discover the true nature of his ‘great expectations’.
