Using only Dickens' extraordinary words and a cast of 9 actors, this powerful stage version of the much loved story is exciting, imaginative and evocative . From its opening image of Pip, alone on the windswept marshes, to the haunted darkness of Miss Haversham’s cobweb-strewn bridal chamber, this inventive and atmospheric play brings to thrilling, theatrical life this classic exploration of childhood terrors and hopes – and adult dreams and regrets.
