by Hugh Leonard
adapted from the novel by Charles Dickens
Directed by Christine Coaster
Hugh Leonard's exciting adaptation of one of Charles Dickens' most popular novels brings to life all the vivid characters of the original story with great clarity, atmosphere and theatrical flair. His brilliant adaptation conveys all of the warmth of Pip's richly human story beginning with his humble boyhood at the home of his long suffering sister and her kindhearted husband, Joe Gargery ("What larks, eh Pip?”), through his encounter with the escaped convict Magwitch, his experience with the bizarre Miss Haversham and her haughty ward Estella and his move to London where his great expectations are mysteriously made known.
Moving smoothly from scene to scene, place to place, the play involves the audience at every step.
Not Dead Enough
Written by Peter James
Adapted by Shaun McKenna
Following our successful production of 'The Perfect Murder' in 2017, we are thrilled to present, by special permission, 'Not Dead Enough'. The play is the third stage adaptation of Peter James' Roy Grace series which toured professionally in 2017.
On the night Brian Bishop murdered his wife, he was sixty miles away, asleep in bed. At least that’s what he claims. The play follows the story of DS Roy Grace who is hunting a serial killer in Brighton whilst also trying to move on after his wife mysteriously disappeared 10 years ago. Could the two be connected? Is it possible for someone to be in two places at once? It soon becomes clear that all is not as it first seemed. This psychological thriller has a host of twists and turns to keep you guessing.
This production is the amateur première for Not Dead Enough
