Christmas Eve, 1803.

Pip, a seven year-old orphan boy, visits his mother’s grave. A frightening encounter with an escaped convict begins a series of events that will change his life forever.

Written by one of England’s greatest authors, Charles Dickens, Great Expectations is the profoundand complex story of Pip’s journey through life.

Some of his most memorable characters – the terrifying Magwitch; Joe Gargery, the kind and generous blacksmith; the eccentric Miss Havisham; the cold and beautiful Estella; Mr Jaggers thepompous lawyer and Pip’s wise friend, Herbert Pocket–are vividly brought to life in this anarchicand joyful telling of this glorious tale.

Using Dickens’original text (well, mostly!) David Mynne takes you on a journey that brings you a 'cast of thousands’in a skilful, one-man adaptation of this epic story.

Be prepared to be scared and amazed and cry and laugh ...a lot!

"This unique version of Great Expectations - billed as ‘deft, dark, delightful and definitely Dickens’ - is both mesmerising and joyful, and I loved every second of it. Faultless."  

                                    

"His talent for putting such excellence into his performance with no other support than a chair, a table and a minimum of small props was truly amazing -  NOT TO BE MISSED."

Theatre Orchard and Living Spit met in 2012. Their eyes locked across a crowded room and they decided to get together and turn an empty shop into a theatre.

They named their bundle of joy “Theatre Shop”. It’s 5 years old this year and is now run by The Theatre Shop CIC, a brand new not-for-profit company.
