Spring Season 2011

A sparkling and fast moving adaptation of a great and much loved Dickens masterpiece!

A terrifying encounter with an escaped convict forever changes the life of the orpahned Pip. Turning his back on his humble beginnings as a blacksmith's apprentice, he strives to better himself and become a gentleman, unaware of the hidden dangers that await him.

Nick Hern Books

This is certainly no mere scissors-and-paste version of the novel. As we follow Pip's transition from orphaned boy of the Kent marshes to blacksmith's apprentice to would-be gentleman, we get something of the book's guilt-haunted flavour.
