Event Details

Great Expectations

By Charles Dickens
Adapted by Neil Bartlett

In the little world in which children have their existence, whosoever brings them up, there is nothing so finely perceived and so finely felt, as injustice. Charles Dickens (Great Expectations)

This powerful adaptation of the much-loved Dickens novel delves into the childhood hopes and fears of young Pip, as he begins his adventures in the windswept marshes of Kent, to the haunting cobwebbed lair of Miss Havisham. Pip’s epic journey sees him come of age and discover the adult world of loss and regret.

From the South Hill Park creative team who brought you Private Peaceful (2018) and Macbeth (2019), expect an inventive and atmospheric interpretation of this classic text.

This performance was brilliant. It is the most innovative adaptation of this Dickens classic that I have ever seen. The acting was magnetic and utterly absorbing. The stage set movement was balletic and wonderful. Superb.


We’re so pleased you enjoyed the performance. The cast and crew have done such an amazing job.


Brilliant performance, clever, atmospheric and totally engaging.


Glad you enjoyed it Amy!
