Age Guide: 14+“A brilliant and bold adaptation of Dicken’s finest work” Mark Ravenhill - Writer on Bleak House
TEXT + GALLERY
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.
