Great Expectations (NHB Modern Plays) by Charles Dickens

A beautifully simple adaptation of one of Dickens's best-loved novels, bringing it thrillingly to life for the stage.

When the orphan Pip meets the convict Magwitch in a graveyard and is forced to help him escape, his life takes a series of unexpected turns. Invited to the house of the mysterious Miss Havisham, he falls in love with her adopted daughter, the beautiful but cold-hearted Estella. Then the generosity of an unknown benefactor sends him to London to become a gentleman. But the truth behind his change of fortune, once revealed, is not what Pip expects...

Eminently actable and stageable, this version is also ideal for schools and amateur theatre companies.

This book contains introductions by Simon Callow, Lucinda Dickens Hawksley (great-great-great granddaughter of Charles Dickens) and Clifford herself.

'Breathtaking... one feels transported back to the Victorian era' - The Stage

'Arresting... the adaptation is a model of its kind' -

'An incredibly cohesive and careful adaptation' - Exeunt Magazine

'Clifford's script is a miracle of intelligent compression that wraps itself elegantly round every essential element in the story' - Guardian
