Bleak House

Bleak House

Tue 15 - Wed 16 October 2019

Wed Green Matinee 2.30pm*

Bleak House is a powerfully physical, gothic retelling of the Dickens novel that follows Esther Summerson’s search for family and identity set against a brutal legal system hell bent on destroying those beneath it. Pickpockets, prostitutes, rowdy drunks and con artists all feature, immersing us into a dank Victorian Britain, recreating the dark and dismal world of the lower orders of London.

Themes of Love, Power, Poverty and Choice ring loudly at this time of social upheaval.
