Revisits the novel Great Expectations. Told from the perspective of Estella Havisham, a little girl corrupted by her guardian and raised to be a weapon of revenge. A Victorian Gothic tragedy.

Combining puppetry, music and striking digital projections, this innovative production re-imagines a beloved Dickens novel. In 'Great Expectations', we share in Pip's adventures. 'Beyond Expectations' revisits the novel, this time placing Estella in the center of the action. We follow her journey from childhood to adulthood. We follow her story from its beginnings on a Gypsy encampment to the timeless decay of life with Miss Havisham, through an empty, loveless marriage. Only Pip's love can survive her destructive charms - but when hope is gone, is love enough? A Victorian Gothic tragedy, this adaptation weaves brand new scenes into Dickens' original tale.

Start Time: 4:10 pm.
