Adapted from Charles Dickens by Lucinda Stroud Directed by Jane Jones
“A superb script by Lucinda Stroud … is the novel’s essence, its central themes of class struggle, unrequited love, and identity—identity reinvented again and again and again.” - Seattle Met Magazine
Based on Charles Dickens’ classic coming of age novel, Great Expectations tells the adventures of the Victorian orphan Pip. As a boy, Pip has three encounters with people that will change his life: the escaped convict Magwitch, the bewitching and cold Estella, and the unhinged Miss Havisham. When Pip comes into an unforeseen fortune and begins the life of a gentleman, he finds his past is not so easily left behind, and the surprising adventures of his new life are decidedly unexpected.
Ages: Great Expectations is recommended for ages 12+; contains yearning, love, adventure, plot twists and cobwebs. Children under 6 are not permitted at any PCS production.
