Eddie Izzard - Great Expectations Tickets

Comedian and actor Eddie Izzard plays 19 characters in a truly unique one-woman retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic novel.

Eddie Izzard’s Dickensian one-woman play

Beloved, boundary-pushing comedian and actor Eddie Izzard brings a new staging of Charles Dickens’ classic novel, Great Expectations to the West End this year. Performing all the roles herself, this one-woman show is a unique opportunity to catch Izzard’s acting skills live.

Great Expectations at the Garrick Theatre is the Victorian tale we are all familiar with, populated by larger-than-life characters including orphan Pip, escaped convict Magwitch, beautiful but distant Estella, and the iconic jilted bride, Miss Havisham.

Izzard assumes the role of every character in a commanding performance that was first seen in New York. No stranger to the stage, she is well-known for her whimsical, self-referential comic style that has propelled her career through sold-out tours and a spot as one of the UK’s most loved comedians. She has previously acted on stage in A Day in the Death of Joe Egg on Broadway, earning a Tony Award nomination for her performance.

Book Eddie Izzard Great Expectations tickets and enjoy a commanding performance of this tale of mystery, rivalries, unrequited love and redemption.
