Hannah Rae Opens Great Expectations for YMTUK

Date - 29 August, 2013, All News Opening Nights Theatre

Hannah Rae opens this week in Great Expectations for the Youth Music Theatre UK, at the Rose Theatre in Kingston.

This is the London premiere of the musical version of Great Expectations, developed by YMT in 2007. Some of the famous characters in British fiction make their appearance in Dickens’ moving portrayal of crime, social class, empire and ambition. The central character of Pip, in this show portrayed as both the child and the young man, acts as the eyes through which we see Victorian society. His growth and coming-of-age provide the central pivot around which the other characters circulate – Joe and Mrs Gargery, Estella, Herbert Pocket, Mr Jaggers, the convict Magwitch and, grandest of all, the classic character of Miss Havisham, the elderly spinster overcome with desire for revenge on her jilted lover.


Hannah Rae is best known for playing Daisy Hardy in popular ITV crime drama Broadchurch. She is a member of the National Youth Theatre and the RADA Youth Company.

She plays Emma in City Of Tiny Lights opposite Billie Piper and Riz Ahmed for BBC Films due for release in 2016.

She plays the role of Courtney in the feature film Fighting with my Family, written and directed by Stephen Merchant.

Hannah is co represented with Untitled Entertainment in LA.
