Broadcast live into digital cinemas across the world from The Vaudeville Theatre on The Dickens Legacy Gala Night - another first - Graham McLaren's lavish, spectacular and unashamedly theatrical production of Jo Clifford's adaptation, celebrates the very best of Dickens' writing and some of his most memorable characters, including the beautiful, chilling Estella, the terrifying convict Magwitch, the manipulative lawyer Jaggers, the tragic, mysterious Miss Havisham, and explores the epic story of Pip's dramatic, emotional tale as he looks back on his young self and his 'great expectations'.
