triumphing over audiences in Listowel Writers Week in 2011,
UK theatre company Hotbuckle troubadours
to the bone return to these shores for the Dickens
bicentenary. With just five actors of astonishing versatility
playing the full array of roles, this troupe explode onto
the stage with this innovative and exhilarating adaptation
of one of Dickens greatest novels.
With all the comedy, mystery, violent melodrama, suspense
and poignancy of the original, it tells of Pips journey
from boyhood to manhood as he seeks to find his place in an
inhospitable world, and has some of the most vivid and memorable
characters in all of English literature.
