Bleak House

An adaptation of the Dickens tale.
Book by Charles Dickens

Archive :: production:T2006710151, play:S986517353, venue:V119

Production details

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.
