Adapted from Charles Dickens by Neil Bartlett

directed by Diane Robinson

Using only Dickens' extraordinary words and a cast of 9 actors, this powerful stage version of the much loved story is exciting, imaginative and evocative . From its opening image of Pip, alone on the windswept marshes, to the haunted darkness of Miss Haversham’s cobweb-strewn bridal chamber, this inventive and atmospheric play brings to thrilling, theatrical life this classic exploration of childhood terrors and hopes – and adult dreams and regrets.

Join us for an evening of lunar poetry hosted in collaboration with the The Frogmore Press. Writer and editor Alexandra Loske will introduce new and classic writing on the Moon, composed, chosen and read by contemporary poets and NVT members.
