Estella at Thorington Theatre


“Brave, brilliant and unmissable. I urge you to buy a ticket.” - The Times

Join us on 23rd July 2022 for Estella at Thorington Theatre. “A rewarding, haunting evening.” - The Telegraph. Matinee & evening shows available.

Inspired by Dickens' classic novel 'Great Expectations', this ground breaking new play shows how devastating the truth can be in a world built on secrets and lies. Diving straight to the heart of literature’s most mysterious heroine – Estella - three captivating actor-musicians lead a radical re-imagining set against a backdrop of live music and song.

The multi-award winning Theatre6 (The Scottsboro Boys - West End, Persuasion, Gabriel) present ‘Estella’, adapted by Kate McGregor with an original score by Maria Haik Escudero and production design by Charlotte Cooke. We believe in the importance of placing unheard female narratives at the heart of what we create – generating new perspectives through the re-working of classic tales.

It's time for the precious daughter of ‘Great Expectations’, Estella, to rise from the debris and step into the light...

Thorington Theatre is a magical new open air woodland theatre in Suffolk. There is a bar serving refreshments and free parking; you are welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy before the show. Doors open 45 minutes before each show. For more information please follow @thoringtontheatre.
