“Emphasis on the heart-warming relationship between Pip and Joe Gargery is a crucial part of the story, and the blacksmith, played by Murray McArthur in the best performance of the evening, achieves this. He captures the poignancy and tenderness of his affection for Pip—played well as a child by Jack Gleeson—and handles beautifully the gap between them as the young man climbs upwards, becoming “a gentleman” and losing contact with his friend.”  - Bruce Arnold (Irish Independent)
