In this “tight and suspenseful” (Chicago Tribune) adaptation, Charles Dickens’ timeless classic comes bursting to life in a stylized and fast-paced world that is sure to leave you gasping for breath as six actors portray 35 characters. Pip, a poor orphan child in nineteenth-century England, is mysteriously plucked from obscurity by the wealthy and decaying Miss Havisham, changing his life forever. A secretive benefactor, unrequited love, and a series of great expectations plague Pip as he attempts to discover whether people can change who they truly are.

Runtime: Approximately 2 hours with one intermission.
