Kneehigh founder and owner of the world's most malleable face David Mynne brings his extraordinary one-man portrayal of Charles Dickens's Great Expectations to the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts (The Wallis) for six performances only in February. With just a suitcase, bowler hat, tiny forge, candlestick, mirror and some cloth, Mynne tells the gothic tale of Pip's journey through life and his great expectations at the hands of a mystery benefactor. Directed by fellow Kneehigh colleague Simon Harvey, Great Expectations will be performed in the Lovelace Studio Theater from Thursday, February 8 through Sunday, February 11.

"The audience has come to The Lovelace Studio Theatre at the Wallis Center for the Performing Arts, in expectation of a theatrical interpretation of one of the great classics of English literature; that 183,349-word bildungsroman boasting six principal characters, 33 secondary characters and scores of supernumeraries - Charles Dickens' "Great Expectations"— said adaptation being accomplished by playwright Andrew McPherson. They will not leave disappointed."
