Great Expectations. Blewbury Players Open Air Production

19 July 2017 - 8:00pm - 22 July 2017 - 10:30pm

This wonderful open air theatre has tiered seating, good sight lines and is set in a traditional English country garden in the beautiful village of Blewbury. Audience are welcome to picnic in the garden before the performance.

Great Expectations has been adapted for The Players by author Julia Golding who hails from Blewbury. “I think of the Players as a large Blewbury family so the cast includes all ages, giving scope for having as many in the cast as the director could manage”. This was Dicken's 13th novel and narrates in the first person orphan Pip’s story.

Experienced director Sebastian Palka is to direct. He says “I remember the first time I saw the Blewbury Players’ magical theatre. I am very excited as this is the first time I am directing an open air production. Being here is as exciting as it is rewarding. For a Polish-born director, working in a British village on a classic British play with an English cast and crew is an absolute dream! I am surrounded by a wonderful, committed and dedicated crew and eager and passionate performers”

The garden and bar will be open from 7.00 pm and during the interval.  For the Saturday matinee the garden will open at 2.15 pm and complimentary tea and cake will be available during the interval instead of the bar.
