In its premiere at the Paper Mill Playhouse, the audiences and critics cheered this new adaptation of one of the greatest novels in the English language, a story of pride and ambition blinding a soul to the true values of life. In this wonderful production you will meet all of the characters you have grown to love...or hate...young Pip, the blacksmith's apprentice whose secret benefactor gives him his great expectation of becoming a London gentleman; the mad Miss Havisham who shut herself up in her gloomy mansion when she was jilted on her wedding day; her adopted daughter, Estella, whom she has trained to break men's hearts; the gentle blacksmith, Joe, and his shrewish wife and many others. Gripping drama, delightful humor and a true Dickensian flavor all the while. A terrific way to introduce children of all ages to one of the great works of literature.
