The producers who delighted audiences here with Travels with my Aunt in 2015 and Our Man in Havana in 2016 are back with Dickens’ timeless classic in a powerful new stage adaptation. 
 
Following a terrifying encounter with an escaped convict, young Pip is given an unexpected chance to better himself by visiting the reclusive and mysterious Miss Havisham.  In the decaying grandeur of her house, Pip falls in love with Estella and helped by an anonymous benefactor, he moves to the bustling city to pursue his dream of winning Estella’s heart and of becoming part of the educated elite.
