Christmas Theatre in the Marble Hall
The impressive Marble Hall at Holkham, what better setting for our Christmas theatre production? Join us for Charles Dickensís tale of destiny, desire and duplicity, brought to you by the imagination of Rain or Shine Theatre Company in James Reynardís new adaptation.
The story tells of Pip, a young orphan growing to adulthood, whose expectations are shaped by a number of colourful and curious characters. His future is formed and fortune made by a mysterious benefactor. Could it be an escaped convict he meets on Christmas Eve, or perhaps Joe Gargery, the kindly blacksmith, Miss Haversham the eternal bride, or an uncompromising lawyer, Mr Jaggers? With the boundaries of good and evil blurred, Pip has to learn who is friend... and who is foe.
Dickensís novel of wealth, poverty, love, rejection and the conflict between good and evil is one of the most popular classics of English literature. Great Expectations is an enduring tale that has delighted readers, listeners, theatre and cinema audiences ever since!
The perfect festive Victorian theatrical treat!
