Great Expectations

Performed by David Mynne Veteran Cornish actor and a founder member of Kneehigh.

Saturday 7th November at 7.30pm

Using Dickens’ original text (well, mostly!) David Mynne’s skilful, one-man performance of this epic story is deft, daft, delightful …and definitely Dickens! Be prepared to be scared and amazed, to cry and laugh!
