From 1 February, Graham McLaren’s ‘outstanding’, ‘haunting’ and ‘stunning’ production of Great Expectations comes to the West End for the first time with the beautiful Estella, the terrifying Magwitch, the manipulative Jaggers, the tragic and mysterious Miss Havisham and Pip looking back on his past – a boy with ‘great expectations’.
‘A classic tale, thrillingly re-told for the stage’ GREAT EXPECTATIONS
chronicles the life of an orphan named Pip following his encounter with the escaped convict Abel Magwitch.
As part of the international Charles Dickens bicentenary celebrations, GREAT EXPECTATIONS comes to the West End’s Vaudeville Theatre for the first time in February 2013.
The popular novel has been repeatedly adapted since its publication 150 years – the most recent film version starring Helena Bonham Carter and Ralph Fiennes – but has never been presented as a full length play in London’s West End or on Broadway.
