BA (Hons) Acting graduates are putting on ‘Beyond Expectations’ at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

This summer Untold Theatre presents ‘Beyond Expectations’, an innovative re-imagining of one of Dickens’ classic tales. This new production goes beyond the beloved novel, Great Expectations’, and tells the story of Estella Havisham.

A Victorian Gothic rags-to-riches tragedy, the show weaves brand new scenes into Dickens’ original tale. ‘Beyond Expectations’ combines music, puppetry and striking digital projections.

“We wanted to show that Dickens, like Shakespeare, can be as relevant and exciting today as it always was. There is also a great deal of speculation about Estella Havisham – her journey is not the focus of the original novel. We’ve imagined what might have happened to her in those missing years.” (Joseph Rynhart –  Producer)

Untold Theatre produces dynamic touring productions and workshops, tackling current issues in engaging and relevant ways. We devise and perform original shows that are often based on true stories, appropriate for a variety of audiences but especially for young adults. We also develop curriculum-driven classic literature shows, re-imagined to focus on modern parallels and ethical considerations.

AUB Alumnus Jessica Levinson Young, (Company Director/Production Manager)  and Joseph Rynhart (Company Director/Technical Manager) will work alongside 5 other AUB Actors on the production.
