PLAYING MISS HAVISHAM
Tuesday 30 July 2013 | 8pm
Claudia lives in rural Canterbury. Her husband is a farm accountant and her son Ben plays in a band. When an eccentric Irish film-maker arrives in New Zealand to make a film of Charles Dickens' Great Expectations, Claudia is keen to audition for the role of Miss Havisham as she sees it as a way out of her humdrum existence.
As she prepares for the role, Claudia finds her own life takes on the twists and turns of a Dickens novel. A work of unexpected visual richness, Playing Miss Havisham unfolds with mystery, music and surprise.
Music by Bach, Chopin, Schubert, Granados, Debussy and Gareth Farr.
With Helen Moulder as Claudia. Directed by Sue Rider, with piano music recorded by Richard Mapp.
