With Helen Moulder as Claudia. Directed by Sue Rider, with piano music recorded by Richard Mapp.

Claudia lives in rural Canterbury. Her husband is a farm accountant and her son Ben plays in a band. Whewn as eccentric Irish film-maker arrives in New Zealand to make a film of Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations, Claudia is keen to audition for the role of Miss Havisham as she sees it as a way out of her humdrum existence.

As she prepares for the role, Claudia finds her own life takes on the twists and turns of a Dickens novel. A work of unexpected visual richness, Playing Miss Havisham unfolds with mystery, music and surprise. Music by Bach, Chopin, Schubert, Granados, Debussy and Gareth Farr.
