Celebrate the 200th anniversary of Charles Dickens's birth at a screening of Great Expectations. Director Graham MacClaren did what many thought was impossible — he brought the story to the stage. Filmed live on the play's opening night less than two months ago in London's West End at the Vaudeville Theatre, this is an ambitious and lavish production of Dickens's revered 19th-century master examination of morality and consequence. Screening in select locations this spring across the U.S., Great Expectations runs nearly two and a half hours — a walk in the park compared to his eight-and-a-half-hour epic The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby. Graham McLaren directs.
