★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "Levick has utilised the script's rich and brutal poetry to create a magnificent and stately piece of darkly comic gothica...the eight-strong cast never put a foot wrong"  
The Herald

★ ★ ★ ★ "a stage adaptation that takes the full measure of Charles Dickens’s mighty 1861 novel Great Expectations, and does it more than justice...a stunningly well-made show" 
The Scotsman

★ ★ ★ ★ "A stylish production with impressive lighting and several fine performances" 
The Stage

Break their hearts my pride and hope; Break their hearts and have no mercy

As Pip journeys from boy to man he pursues that which is eternally out of reach. He yearns for a family and a place to belong to, he longs to be a gentleman, and he strives to do what is right. But above all else, he craves the love of one woman.

Entangled in Miss Havisham’s tragic web of self pity and pitiless desire for revenge, Estella is raised to be admired, to be gawped, smelled and pawed at. Her emotions are frozen; she is trained to hurt, only to be hurt in return.

Jo Clifford's remarkable adaptation uses Dickens' own words from this devastating and darkly beautiful novel, to create a classic piece of modern British theatre.
