Great Expectations

By Charles Dickens
ted for the stage by Neil Bartlett

directed by Ian Higham

Tuesday 8 to Saturday 12 November 

7.45pm Main Stage

12 November 3.00pm Matinee

Neil Bartlett’s acclaimed adaptation of Great  Expectations thrillingly brings to life on the stage some of Charles Dickens' most memorable characters. The aspirational Pip, the  kindly blacksmith Joe Gargery, the mysterious convict Abel Magwitch, the eccentric Miss Haversham, her beautiful ward Estella and Pip's good-hearted room-mate Herbert Pocket.

Through a series of strange and thrilling encounters, from its famous opening on the Kent marshes to its dramatic conclusion at Satis House, secrets of the past and strange twists of fate are revealed as Pip unravels the truth behind the mysterious financial bequest that makes him a gentleman. As events steer him towards maturity, he makes  his most important discovery, finding the truth about himself.
