One of the greatest novels in the English language comes to life on stage. When GREAT EXPECTATIONS premiered in 1992, audiences and critics cheered this adaptation of the famous story of pride and ambition blinding the true values of life. Pip, a lowly blacksmith's apprentice has a secret benefactor who allows him to become a London gentleman. During the course of his journey, he meets a vast array of wonderful characters including the mad Miss Havisham, who shut herself up in her gloomy, haunted mansion after being jilted on her wedding day, and trains her adopted daughter, Estella, to break men's hearts. Gripping drama, delightful humor and a true Dickensian flavor all the while!
