About the Show

Bleak House is a powerfully physical, gothic retelling of 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.
