Quantum Theatre

'Great Expectations'

Quantum Theatre bring their lively brand of comedy, music and  magic to the great Dickens favourite, Great Expectations for Summer 2017.

Packed full of action, intrigue and a vast array of Dickens’ most popular and infamous characters this lively new version delivers high drama, comedy and grimey double-dealing in a fun show for all the family.

A terrifying encounter with an escaped convict on the wild Kent marshes; a summons to meet the bitter, decaying Miss Havisham and her beautiful, cold-hearted ward Estella; the sudden generosity of a mysterious benefactor: this series of events change the orphaned Pip’s life forever, and he eagerly abandons his humble origins to begin a new life as a gentleman in London….

Adapted and directed by Michael Whitmore,  this lively new production delivers a fun, pacey and accessible version of the Dickens original whilst retaining all the high drama, larger-than-life characters and grimey double-dealing duplicity of this enduring Dickens classic.
