Beyond Expectations

Striking costumes and innovative projections.

The Scotsman

In 2015, this new production went beyond the beloved Charles Dickens novel, Great Expectations. We told the story from the perspective of Estella Havisham, a little girl corrupted by her guardian and raised to be a weapon of revenge.

In Great Expectations, we share in Pip’s adventures. Beyond Expectations revisits the novel, this time placing Estella in the centre of the action. We watch as the lives of Pip and Estella intertwine, and how she ultimately breaks his heart.

A Victorian Gothic rags­-to-­riches tragedy, this adaptation wove brand new scenes into Dickens’ original tale. We performed this play at Edinburgh Fringe, before taking it on tour to seven venues across South West England.

A bold piece of theatre, ambitious in the extreme.
