Using only Dickens' extraordinary words and a cast of eight actors, Neil Bartlett has created a powerful stage version of this much-loved story. From its opening image of Pip, alone on the windswept marshes, to the haunted darkness of Miss Havisham's cobweb-strewn lair, Bartlett's inventive and atmospheric adaptation brings to thrilling theatrical life this classic exploration of childhood terrors and hopes - and adult dreams and regrets.
