Our 2023 production, performed at St Mary DeCrypt in Gloucester, was “Great Expectations”, the well-known and well-loved coming-of-age tale by Charles Dickens.

About the production

In this classic story of love, hope and survival, we follow the fortunes of Pip, a lonely orphan, from the windswept marshes of the Thames estuary to his adult life in London.

Along the way we meet a host of memorable characters, who will give Rococo actors an exciting opportunity to hone their skills and experience a lively, fast-paced ensemble production.
