Act II Theatre Company is putting on Great Expectations at South Holland Centre in Spalding tonight and tomorrow (Wednesday and Thursday at 7.30pm).
Charles Dickens’ seminal work of Victorian fiction tells the story of orphan Pip, whose terrifying encounter with an escaped convict changes his life forever.
He strives to better himself, seeking the affections of ice-cold Estella, adopted daughter of Miss Havisham, herself imprisoned in her wedding dress.
However, Pip is not aware of the hidden dangers that lie ahead when he turns his back on his humble life as a blacksmith’s apprentice.
This is a new adaptation by Nick Ormerod and Declan Donnellan.
Tickets are £9.50 and £8 concessions from the centre.
