Great Expectations at the Maddermarket Theatre
The young Philip Pirrip known as Pip helps the escaped convict Abel Magwitch and sets in motion a train of events that will affect his life. He is taken under the wing of Miss Havisham and falls in love with Estella. He receives money from a mysterious source and renounces his humble past life but when it is revealed that Magwitch is his benefactor a painful process of moral education begins for Pip.
This was a wonderful evening at the Maddermarket Theatre with the Norwich based Baroque Theatre Company putting on a splendid show. The world of Charles Dickens full of the characters from Great Expectations were brought to life giving us all a night to remember. All our Great Expectations were fulfilled as we all celebrated the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Dickens.
