“I have been bent and broken, but – I hope – into a better shape.”
Estella, Great Expectations
This re-envisioning of Dickens‘ best-loved novel, led by a band of three actor musicians, follows the story of Estella’s astonishing self-discovery. Against a backdrop of live original music and visual theatre making, audiences will witness the true nature of Estella’s relationship with Miss Havisham and her desperation to discover her real Mother’s identity. In this radical re-working, will Pip and Estella be together forever? Will Estella finally be able to leave her dark past behind and step into the light?
“Brave, brilliant and unmissable. I urge you to buy a ticket.”
The Times (on The Scottsboro Boys)
Co-produced by multi-award winning Theatre6 (The Scottsboro Boys – West End, Persuasion, Gabriel) and Tales Re-told (Uncle Vanya, Antigone, More Light), adapted by Kate McGregor with live original music by Maria Haik Escudero and production design by Charlotte Cooke. We collectively believe in the importance of placing diverse female perspectives at the heart of what we create – generating new equity through the re-working of classic tales.
This performance will take place with a live audience at Omnibus Theatre.
