Event Series Event Series: Havisham

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

Who was the woman being behind Dickens’ most monstrous female creation? A journey into the psyche of Miss Havisham from Great Expectations.

What drove the hopeful young Miss Havisham to her cruel and fractured fate?

Experience her heartbreak, as we delve into her childhood trauma and follow her on an intricate journey to a world where she finds herself ‘the leading lady in a drama she can’t comprehend.’

The gaslighting is subtle, the coercive control slick.

Can Miss Havisham escape her twisted karma? Or is she destined to impose the devastation of her trauma on a new victim?

★★★★★ “Alexander seems to unlock her own demons in Havisham, as well as her own angelic side and is a breathtaking sight to behold on stage” – Broadway Baby
★★★★ “As ever with Alexander, this is a masterclass in acting.” – The Stage, Paul Vale
“Alexander’s absorbing performance is underscored with innocence and pain, shifting seamlessly between the child and the woman.” – Fringe Review
