A Theatre Royal Winchester & New Theatre Royal Portsmouth co-commission by the David Glass Ensemble with support from Konzept Arts & Ideas, Bath Spa University & Santander Universities.

A Physical adaptation of the novel by master theatre maker David Glass.

Bleak House is a powerfully physical, gothic retelling of the Dickens’ novel that follows Esther Summerson’s search for family and identity set against a brutal legal system hell bent on destroying those beneath it.

Pickpockets, prostitutes rowdy drunks and con artists all feature, immersing us into a dank Victorian Britain, recreating the dark and dismal world of the lower orders of London.

Themes of love, power, poverty and choice ring loudly at this time of social upheaval.

Includes post-show chat
(Thursday only)

Recommended Age: 14+ (Contains some bad language and non-frontal nudity)
