Great Expectations tells of the orphan Pip’s journey from boyhood to manhood, as he seeks to find his place in an inhospitable world. We follow him from the marshes of Kent to London, where he aims to further his education and become a gentleman with the aid of a large fortune from a secret benefactor. It is a story of love and loss, of guilt and shame, fear and courage, and has some of the most vivid and memorable characters in all of English literature from Abel Magwitch to Miss Haversham.
With all the comedy, mystery, violent melodrama, suspense and poignancy of the original, Hotbuckle bring this wonderful tale vividly to life with their trademark live music, multiple characterisation and inventiveness.
“Memorable, beautiful, stunning, moving, hilarious, heartbreaking – magnificent!” John Mackenna, Novelist and Playwright
