‘If you knew my story, your heart would break too. A cobwebbed tale of heartbreak’

Havisham

Who was the woman being behind Dickens’ most monstrous female creation? What was it that condemned the hopeful young Miss Havisham to her cruel and fractured fate? Experience her heartbreak as we delve into her childhood trauma and follow her on an intricate journey to a world where she finds herself ‘the leading lady in a drama she can’t comprehend.’ The gaslighting is subtle, the coercive control slick. Can Miss Havisham escape her twisted karma?

Havisham offers a fresh perspective of Dickens’ greatest work of Gothic characterisation and invites the audience to share poignant moments from her childhood in rural Kent and as a naive young woman who arrives in London unprepared for the events which gradually consume her.

The story appeals to both fans of Dickens as well as those new to his stories and confronts how the ripples of fate can lead to devastating consequences.

Written and Performed by Award winning actress Heather Alexander

Direction & Dramaturg by Dominique Gerrard
