'Great Expectations' by Charles Dickens
Amongst the most familiar and well-loved of Dickens’ classic novels, ‘Great Expectations’ is brought to life on stage by New Era Players in this adaptation by Nick Ormerod and Declan Donnellan, which was first performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company in 2005. Pip, an orphan from the marshes of Kent, comes into money in mysterious circumstances. His benefactor is unknown, but he suspects the hand of the eccentric recluse, Miss Havisham, in his good fortune. The story follows his life as he moves from poverty to wealth, from the lowly blacksmith’s to the streets of London, encountering a cast of colourful characters along the way. This stage adaptation retains the spirit and vivacity of Dickens’ prose, in a modern and lively production.
