Synopsis

“Come gather around and hear the tale that’s unfolding of one boy with Great Expectations. His Christian name Philip, his surname was Pirrup but call him Pip”.

Great Expectations is the London premiere of the musical version developed by YMT in 2007. Some of the greatest characters in British fiction make their appearance in Dickens’ moving portrayal of crime, social class, empire and ambition. The central character of Pip, here portrayed as both the child and the young man, acts as the eyes through which we see Victorian society. His growth and coming-of-age provide the central pivot around which the other characters circulate – Joe and Mrs Gargery, Estella, Herbert Pocket, Mr Jaggers, the convict Magwitch and, grandest of all, the classic character of Miss Havisham, the elderly spinster overcome with desire for revenge on her jilted lover.
