    Great Expectations

    This term sees the latest musical offering from award-winning duo John Moore and Peter Fanning. Following the successful revival of “The Lost Domain” at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2014, Shrewsbury is delighted to present a new adaptation of Charles Dickens’ masterpiece, “Great Expectations”. 

    The show tells the story of Pip, a young orphan who rescues a convict on the Essex marches and thereby changes his life for ever. His journey to adulthood introduces him to an array of extraordinary characters: the tragic Miss Havisham, her beautiful ward Estella, the jovial blacksmith, Joe, and the sinister lawyer, Jaggers. Featuring a hugely talented young cast, this promises to be another in a long line of hit Salopian musicals. 

    OS are invited to attend the play and a drinks reception between the acts on the Saturday evening. All are very welcome and we are certain that you will have a most enjoyable evening.

    There is no charge, but if you would like to come along please contact Janet Scholes 01743 280892 or jscholes@shrewsbury.org.uk so that we can ensure that you are catered for.

    We hope to see you there.
