A journey into the psyche of Miss Havisham from Great Expectations

If you knew my story, your heart would break too…

1825. After reliving traumatic memories from her childhood, a young woman, arrives in
London. She is full of hope and ready to embrace a fresh start.  However, she soon finds herself as ‘the leading lady in drama she can’t comprehend.’ The gaslighting is subtle, the manipulation slick. Can Miss Havisham discern her fate? Or is she destined to relive the devastation of her trauma?

Havisham offers a fresh perspective of Charles Dickens’ greatest work of Gothic characterisation – Miss Havisham from Great Expectations. Miss Havisham is the embodiment of stuck trauma and malignant rage. But how did she arrive at this place and what are the tragic secrets of her calamitous past…?

Heather Alexander is an award-winning actress, writer, and producer with a prodigious list of stage, television, and film credits. Recently she has been performing ROOM (an adaption of Woolf’s A Room of One’s Own) and Shirley Valentine to packed houses, and she is also the creative lead of Hastings Fringe Theatre Festival.
