Tim Baker’s new and wildly successful adaptation of Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations received its world premiere at Theatr Clwyd in 2009.  It’s a rich and theatrically vivid adaptation of Dickens’ classic, following Pip from his early encounter with an escaped convict and his experiences with the cruel Miss Haversham and her ward Estella to his removal to London where after his ‘expectations’ are mysteriously unveiled, Pip aspires to become a gentleman in the company of his friend Herbert and the mysterious Magwich, all the while remaining in thrall to Estella despite her lack of reciprocation.

“This is a new Dickens for a new century, and it is fabulous” – Theatre in Wales Review
