In just a few sentences of `Great Expectations', Charles Dickens sketches in the bare bones of a history for the character of Miss Havisham, the old woman who sits in a shuttered old house in her soiled bridal dress, as she has done since the day she was jilted many years before. Ronald Frame's play asks how she got to be in that state.
