Great Expectations

March 7, 2013

An ambitious staging of an adaptation by Jo Clifford of the Dickens novel GREAT EXPECTATIONS at the Alexandra Theatre in Birmingham. It felt more like a film than a play with a seamless mis en scene effect cleverly choreographed supported by a wonderful score. The design and costumes are amazing. The exaggerated almost grotesque characters are brought to life by polished performances from all the cast although James Vaughan as Wopsle deserves special mention.
