“If you knew my story, your heart would break too... ”
It is 1825. A young woman, newly liberated from the deep-rooted effects of an abusive childhood, arrives in London. She is full of hope and embraces a fresh start. However, she soon finds herself ‘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 be relive the devastation of her trauma?
Havisham offers a fresh and perspective of the Gothic character of Miss Havisham from Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. Miss Havisham is the embodiment of stuck rage. But how did she arrive at this place; what are the tragic secrets of her calamitous past?
