Great Expectations

£5 per person

Suitable for ages 16+


Gerald Dickens, the great great grandson of author Charles Dickens presents his own theatrical adaptation of Great Expectations – widely regarded as one of Charles’ greatest novels. Gerald’s adaptation takes Pip from the lonely cold Kent marshes and follows his journey into the respectable world of London.  Along the way we meet some of Dickens’ greatest characters: Miss Havisham, Estella, Herbert Pocket, Mr Jaggers, Wemmick and the Aged P. Although simply staged, Great Expectations is truly dramatic.
