    Following a terrifying encounter with an escaped convict, young Pip is given an unexpected chance to better himself by visiting the reclusive and mysterious Miss Havisham. In the decaying grandeur of her house, Pip falls in love with Estella.

    Helped by an anonymous benefactor, Pip moves to the bustling city to pursue his dream of winning Estella's heart and becoming part of the educated elite.

    Nichola is best known for her role in the long running TV series Surgical Spirit, the films Tomorrow Never Dies and Cheri and her many stage appearances including Kiss Me Kate for the RSC, The Night of the Iguana in the West End & Alan Bennett's The Lady in the Van.
