Ada Clare and Richard Carstone are caught up in the case which could eventually make them incredibly rich, if it can ever be brought to a conclusion. They go to live at Bleak House which is owned by the generous John Jarndyce, who is given custody, by the court, of Ada and Richard. Jarndyce is also the guardian of Esther Summerson, who also lives at Bleak House.Presented byBawds.

With an intricately woven plot and an unforgettable cast of characters, Bleak House is widely regarded as Dickens’ masterpiece. This brand new stage adaptation is a fast-moving, witty and ingenious production in the style of Jamaica Inn and Great Expectations. Filled with comedy and angry satire, Bleak House is a tale of loss and love and a savage indictment of a society that is rotten to the core. In a first for the New Vic, the audience is invited to a Walk-Through of the world of the play before the performance begins.Producer New Vic. Adapted by Theresa Heskins. Director Theresa Heskins.
