Deft, daft, delightful… and definitely Dickens!

Rabbit Theatre brings you the award winning Great Expectations performed by David Mynne.

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.

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 the pompous lawyer and Pip’s dear friend Herbert Pocket – are vividly brought to life in this anarchic and joyful telling of this glorious tale.

Using Dickens’ original words (well, mostly!), David Mynne will take you on a journey that brings you a ‘cast of thousands’ in this skilful, one-man adaptation of Charles Dickens’ epic novel.

David Mynne is a Cornish based actor and a founder member of Kneehigh Theatre

…a piece of theatre which is as ingenious as it is intimate.   Frank Ruhrmund: The Cornishman

This unique version of Great Expectations… is both mesmerising and joyful, and I loved every second of it. Faultless.   Sue Cade: Wildfire – the daily critical review of the Exeter Ignite Festival

Mesmerising theatre at its best from a legend of the Cornish scene.   Lee Trewhela: The West Briton
