Great Expectations (adapted from the novel by Charles Dickens)  

Great Expectations (adapted from the novel by Charles Dickens) $19.95 ex GST
$21.95 inc GST
Using only Charles Dickens’ extraordinary words and a chameleon ensemble of eight actors, Neil Bartlett's powerful stage version of this much-loved story brings its settings and characters to thrilling theatrical life.

From its opening image of little Pip, alone on the windswept marshes, to the haunted darkness of mad Miss Haversham's cobweb-strewn lair, this brand-new adaptation especially commissioned by Aberystwyth Arts Centre takes its audience on a journey right to the heart of Dickens’ great exploration of childhood terrors and hopes - and of adult dreams and regrets.


Cast : 16M, 7F (doubling possible)
