In a country graveyard, a young orphan, (Pip) stumbles upon a fugitive from a British prison ship. In an act motivated simultaneously by fear and generosity he brings the convict food and drink as well as tools to break his chains. When the convict is captured the following day, he protects Pip, stating that he alone has stolen the items from Pip's family. Years later Pip's financial circumstances are improved by an anonymous benefactor. Pip abandons his friends of more modest means, and takes on the trappings and lifestyle of a gentleman. The British director David Lean made two films based on the novels of Charles Dickens, Oliver Twist and Great Expectations

Uncle Vanya by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov ( Book )
1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
So, what happens in Uncle Vanya? Not much; just life, played out over four acts. There are rich people, and there are people who work for the rich people, whom the rich people don't really care about. There is a gun fired in anger and desperation, but there aren't any bodies to carry off stage. There are men making fools of themselves over women. There are those who accept their fates and wait for their rewards in heaven, and there are others who don't care one way or another. Chekhov's play moves so languidly that, without a vibrant cast, an understanding director, and a lively translation, it stands the chance of passing under the radar of the average audience. The reworking of the script aims at accessibility, replacing the "outdated colloquialisms" and "brittle prose" of earlier translations
