Winner of the Joseph Jefferson Award for Director, Jason Gerace returns to Strawdog to remount Gale Childs Daly’s bold reinvention of the classic novel as a fast-paced theatrical feat. An orphan is plucked from poverty and thrust into the upper class, his benefactor’s identity and motives hidden by lawyers and other minions. As Pip tries to find love and a living in his radically changed circumstances, he untangles a fascinating web of secret identities and hidden pasts.
