SILK ROAD RISING & REMY BUMPPO THEATRE CO PRESENT

Great Expectations

The U.S. Premiere

May 11th - July 2nd

Written by Charles Dickens | Adapted by Tanika Gupta

Co-Directed by Lavina Jadhwani and Nick Sandys

Dickens’ beloved tale of aspiration, intrigue, and romance is thrillingly transplanted to a colonized India by award-winning British Bengali playwright Tanika Gupta. When Indian orphan Pip receives a mysterious inheritance, he must choose between his humble rural life and the city life of an English “gentleman.” In a vibrant clash of cultures, classes, and conscience, Gupta's brilliant adaptation expands Dickens' enduring question: Is it worth losing who you are for who you might become?
