By Charles Dickens, Adapted by Nick Ormerod and Declan Donnellan
Directed by Sarah Davey-Hull
A sparkling and fast moving adaptation of a great and much loved Dickens masterpiece!
A terrifying encounter with an escaped convict forever changes the life of the orpahned Pip. Turning his back on his humble beginnings as a blacksmith's apprentice, he strives to better himself and become a gentleman, unaware of the hidden dangers that await him.
– Nick Hern Books
This is certainly no mere scissors-and-paste version of the novel. As we follow Pip's transition from orphaned boy of the Kent marshes to blacksmith's apprentice to would-be gentleman, we get something of the book's guilt-haunted flavour.
