Event Details

From humble beginnings in the marshlands of Kent, young Pip is determined to make strides in the big city and get a leg-up in society.

Caught up in a world of compelling characters – the elderly jilted bride Miss Havisham, the criminal Magwitch and alluring Estella – can our ambitious protagonist realise his dreams or will life inevitably present itself with obstacles and trickery?

Abounding in trademark Dickensian humour, this wry coming-of-age story has been a landmark of English Literature since its publication in 1861, and continues to charm readers to this day. Teeming with eccentricity, fearsome convicts, stopped clocks, decay and decadence.

By Charles Dickens. Adapted by Jo Clifford. Directed by Jenny Stephens. Production Design by Fiona McKeon.

Tickets: £15. Members at £12.50. Under 18s £8.
