Following on from huge success of the previous two Christmas shows, ERT – East Riding Theatre – present the third part of its Dickens’ trilogy.
Often considered the author’s greatest work, ‘Great Expectations’ follows the fortunes of orphan Pip as he ventures from life with his abusive sister and her blacksmith husband into London’s high society.
The cast includes comedian and actor Stephen Frost (‘The Oblivion Boys’, ‘12 Angry Men’, ‘Whose Line Is It Anyway?’), as Magwitch. Stephen is joined by his real-life partner, Janet Prince, (‘Murder, Margaret and Me’, ‘Pleasure Island’) who plays Miss Havisham, and by David Schaal, (‘The Office’, ‘The Inbetweeners’, ‘A Steady Rain’) as Jaggers.
Vincent Regan, when asked about his fast paced and dynamic adaptation, promises to deliver a show ‘faithful to the novel’.
Director of the show, Andrew Pearson, says “Great Expectations is an amazing work of literature. It’s thrilling to bring it to the stage with such an exciting cast. The audience is in for a real treat!”
