Great Expectations


Barbara Field from Charles Dickens

Published by Dramatists Play Service

4 Female

A rich theatrical re-telling of the famous classic which captures the full flavour and style of Dickens' immortal novel

Using a simple unit set and making resourceful use of a brilliantly theatrical storytelling technique, the play conveys all the energy and warmth of Dickens' richly human story with cinematic quickness and fluidity

Shifting deftly from scene to scene and from place to place, the play involves the audience at every step, building steadily to the climax where Pip gives moving evidence that in growing up he has also come of age as a compassionate and admirable human being
