Abstract or Description:

Music theatre work for two performers by Flam Productions.

Imagine a modern day relationship between one of Dickens’s most striking characters, Miss Havisham, the aging, jilted bride in Great Expectations and his own wife, Catherine Hogarth, from whom he separated after 19 years of marriage and ten children. As Catherine attempts to organize Miss Havisham’s belongings in order to move house, the two women needle, irritate each other, and compete for attention. Their stories are revealed through newly commissioned vocal music as they re-enact the wedding that never happened.

Contributors: Peyton Jones, Jeremy (Composer); Pook, Jocelyn (Composer) and Henry, Michael (Composer)
