Bleak Expectations Tickets
Join Pip Bin and his friends on a hilarious Dickensian adventure, featuring guest appearances from some of your favourite comedians.
A star-studded Dickensian parodyWhat would happen if Charles Dickens drank too much gin, lived for another 150 years, and wrote a West End play? Find out in Bleak Expectations at the Criterion Theatre, the daft new comedy that sends up the best of Victorian melodrama.
Join orphan Pip Bin, his sisters Pippa and Poppy, and his best friend Harry Biscuit as they outrun the clutches of scheming Mr. Gently Benevolent. Will virtue win over evil? Will depressing boarding schools and devilish plotting be foiled once and for all? And most importantly, will there be a happy ending with lots of romance?
The Bleak Expectations play is a fantastically silly adaptation of Mark Evans’ award-winning BBC Radio 4 series.
If an ultimate parody of Dickens’ greatest hits wasn’t enough, each week, familiar faces from the world of showbiz will take to the stage. Tom Allen, Adjoa Andoh, Jo Brand, Alexander Armstrong, Stephen Fry, Sue Perkins, and Lee Mack are just some of the stars donning bonnets, tails, and dastardly disguises in this madcap comedy.
This uproarious and witty show is at the Criterion Theatre for a strictly limited season, so book Bleak Expectations tickets now to join the fun.
