Rabbit Theatre’s Great Expectations
Deft, daft, delightful… and definitely Dickens! Written by one of England’s greatest authors, Great Expectations is the profound and complex story of Pip’s journey through life.
Some of his most memorable characters – the terrifying Magwitch, Joe Gargery the kind and generous blacksmith, the eccentric Miss Havisham, the cold and beautiful Estella, Mr Jaggers the pompous lawyer and Pip’s wise friend, Herbert Pocket – are vividly brought to life in this anarchic and joyful telling of this glorious tale.
Using original words and speech (well, mostly!), Dave Mynne, Cornish based actor and founder member of Kneehigh Theatre, will take you on a journey that brings you a ‘cast of thousands’ in this skilful, one-man adaptation of Charles Dickens’ epic novel.
Be prepared to be scared and amazed and cry and laugh … a lot!
