A stage adaptation of Charles Dickens' Great Expectations comes to the West End for the very first time.
Graham McLaren's "outstanding", "haunting" and "utterly brilliant" production brings some of the most memorable characters ever created to life. The beautiful, chilling Estella, the terrifying convict Magwitch, the manipulative Jaggers, the tragic and mysterious Miss Havisham and Pip looking back on his young self - a boy with "great expectations".
Directed by Graham McLaren, Jo Clifford's bold adaptation toured nationally last year to widespread acclaim. This Great Expectations is set entirely in Miss Haversham's lavishly decaying dining room. Paul Nivison and Taylor Jay-Davies play Pip old and young, with Paula Wilcox as Miss Haversham and Grace Rowe as Estella.
