“The story Charles Dickens might have written after drinking too much gin…” Bleak Expectations is a witty, chaotic send-up of all things Dickens. With jokes coming thick and fast, larger-than-life characters, heroes, villains, heroines, damsels in distress and an anvil. Will our hero Pip Bin be able to defeat the truly evil Mr Gently Benevolent? Only time will tell.

There will be some doubling/multi-roling of some characters, so age ranges are indicative of the character, not necessarily the actor.
