Bleak House archiveAn adaptation of the Dickens tale. 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.
