We are a local theatre company based in Bath who aim to create playful, exciting new theatre for the whole community. 

We are currently working on creating a family-friendly adaptation of Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. As part of this we also want to be able to deliver relaxed performances that cater for adults and children with special needs.

Being as what the times are hard - much like in the times of Charles Dickens - we all know how hard it is to be an arts company at the moment (I think we can thank the Conservatives for that...). But we at Second Face soldier on regardless,  determined to bring together like-minded creative genuises to create something exciting and innovative for the local community. 

Help us make theatre accessible and put a smile on people's faces!

If you could spare us any money at all we would be extremely grateful. This is a project that we all believe in wholeheartedly, and with just a little financial boost we can create something truly meaningful, worthwhile and community-focussed. 

Show Synopsis:

Extra, extra, read all about it! Miss Havisham of Satis House goes up in flames…

Are you sitting comfortably? Good. Then we’ll begin… Miss Havisham, the woman who locked herself away with a broken heart, the woman with poison and hatred rotting her soul and the walls around her, is - dead. Cruel and bitter, punishing and mean. But was she? Perhaps, if you look at things a little differently - if you look just beneath the surface - you’ll discover that things are never as they seem...

Join Second Face Theatre Company as they reimagine Charles Dickens’ original story, retracing the steps that lead Pip and Estella to the gates of Satis House after Miss Havisham’s death. Follow us as we weave through events to discover what hand fate has in matters of the heart, and whether true love really does conquer all. With a five star company who are known for powerful storytelling, and a show for all the family, you’re guaranteed an innovative and exciting adventure.

There are two matinee showings, which are relaxed performances specifically tailored for families.
