Young Pip hasn’t had it easy — orphaned early, knocked about by a bad-tempered sister and headed for a life of hard labor. A terrifying encounter in a graveyard and a summons to meet the eccentric Miss Havisham complicate matters.

Metropulos directs. The show runs through Oct. 30 in the Angus Bowmer Theatre on the Oregon Shakespeare Festival campus, 15 S. Pioneer St., Ashland.
