A brilliant one-man version of Great Expectations
David Mynne, veteran Cornish actor and a founder member of Kneehigh, in a one-man performance of Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations.
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 friend, Herbert Pocket – are vividly brought to life in this anarchic and joyful telling of this glorious tale.
Using Dickens’ original text (well, mostly!) this skilful, one-man performance is deft, daft, delightful …and definitely Dickens!
Be prepared to be scared and amazed, to cry and laugh!
