Hotbuckle perform an adaption of Great Expectations at Smallhythe Barn Theatre.
Great Expectations was one of Charles Dickens’ greatest critical and popular successes. It chronicles the coming of age of humble, orphaned Pip who is apprenticed in the lowly work of a forge but through a family connection is introduced to the Lady in the Manor, Miss Havisham, an eccentric, jilted bride and her beautiful, proud and haughty ward Estella. Pip transfixed by Estella dares to dream of becoming a gentleman and being her equal— and one day, under sudden and enigmatic circumstances, he finds himself in possession of "great expectations." In this gripping tale of crime and guilt, revenge and reward, Dickens shows us clearly that affection, loyalty, and conscience are so much more important than social advancement, wealth, and class.
With live music, multi role playing, humour and inventiveness, yet another English classic novel is brought wonderfully to life—Hotbuckle style!
