Young Pip hasn’t had it easy—orphaned early, knocked about by a bad-tempered sister and headed for a life of hard labor. A terrifying encounter in a graveyard and a summons to meet the eccentric Miss Havisham aren’t helping matters. But when a mysterious benefactor sends Pip to London to become a gentleman, his dreams come true. Or do they? Charles Dickens’ thrilling tale of friendship, love, the price of revenge and the true nature of generosity comes to life in this new adaptation by OSF favorites Penny Metropulos and Linda Alper.
