LOVE HER, PIP. IF SHE WOUNDS YOU, LOVE HER. IF SHE FAVOURS YOU, LOVE HER. IF SHE TEARS YOUR HEART TO PIECES – AND AS IT GETS OLDER AND STRONGER IT WILL TEAR DEEPER – LOVE HER.
Great Expectations remains a story about the ageless themes of unrequited love, the divide between the rich and the poor, and what it means to be a ‘good person'.
Pip is a council estate boy with no money, and no hope for the future. His mother, widow Jo Gargery, is a police officer struggling to provide for herself and her son. Before long, Pip’s life is changed forever after he meets mysterious fugitive Magwycz, the beautiful but troubled Estella and the fearsome, wounded Miss Havisham. Pip’s whirlwind adventure takes him to the heights of big city success - and into more danger than he could have ever imagined.
Critically-acclaimed companies Crowley & Co. (Radioman, Greywing House) and The Heritage Arts Company (VAULT Festival, The Cement Garden) join forces to bring this thrilling, romantic romp to The Old Red Lion Theatre for Christmas 2017.
