Dickens’ classic “Great Expectations” is to be staged at the Theatre Royal, in Bury St Edmunds, next month.

It is being produced by the same team who bought “Travels With My Aunt” and “Our Man in Havana”

to the playhouse and is taking place between Tuesday and Saturday, March 6 and 10.

The story centres on a terrifying encounter with an escaped convict by Pip, a young orphan. He is given an unexpected chance to better himself by visiting the reclusive and mysterious Miss Havisham.

In the decaying grandeur of her house, Pip falls in love with her adopted daughter Estella and helped by an anonymous benefactor, he moves to the bustling city to pursue his dreams of winning her heart and of becoming part of the educated elite.
