Miss Havisham on Stilts
“..The strangest lady I have ever seen, or ever shall see…dressed in rich materials, satins and lace and silks…bridal flowers in her hair, but her hair was white. I saw that the bride within the bridal dress had withered like the dress, and like the flowers, and had no brightness left but the brightness of her sunken eyes. “Look at me” she said “you are not afraid of a woman who has never seen the sun since you were born?” Charles Dickens ‘Great Expectations’.
Catrin magically brings to life one of Dickens most inspired creations who went on to become one of the most loved characters in literature. Miss Havisham is a fully interactive street theatre experience, who can transport the public into her dust filled house of stopped clocks and spider infested cakes. Perfect for any literature and arts festival, community events and Halloween, victoriana or burlesque themed parties. Both children and adults are captivated by this slightly macabre, but lovably eccentric, old lady.
