Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
Performed by David Mynne / Directed by Simon Harvey / Adapted by Andrew McPherson
Christmas Eve, 1803.
Pip, a seven year-old orphan boy, visits his mother’s grave. A frightening encounter with an escaped convict begins a series of events that will change his life forever.
Some of his most memorable characters – the terrifying Magwitch, Joe Gargery the kind and generous blacksmith, the eccentric Miss Havisham, the cold and beautiful Estella, Mr Jaggers the pompous lawyer and Pip’s wise friend Herbert Pocket – are vividly brought to life in this anarchic and joyful telling of this glorious tale.
Using Dickens’ original words (well, mostly!), David Mynne (Rabbit Theatre) will take you on a journey that brings you a ‘cast of thousands’ in this skilful, one-man adaptation of this great novel.
Be prepared to be scared and amazed and to cry and laugh...
Suitable for adults and accompanied children over 10
