GREAT EXPECTATIONS

Charles Dickens

April - May 2020

"a close and tight-knit ensemble"

A YOUNGER THEATRE

A dynamic adaptation of one of Charles Dickens’ most celebrated novels.

 

When Pip, an orphaned blacksmith’s apprentice from the lonely Kent marshes, discovers he has an unnamed benefactor, his life is turned upside down. Thrust into the cut-throat world of Victorian London, Pip finds himself at the heart of an epic thriller of love, loss and friendship. Join Pip as he remembers the characters, events and experiences that shaped his life – for better and for worse.

 

Cyphers (Northanger Abbey, Three Musketeers) return in 2020 with their gripping adaptation of Charles Dickens’ timeless novel. Brought to life through their characteristic style of multi-roling casts and fast-paced action.
