The Watermill's production of Bleak Expectations is headed for the Criterion Theatre in London's West End!
Bleak Expectations is the riotous story Charles Dickens might have written after drinking too much gin! And, crucially, had lived for another 152 years.
The chaotic capers of a young Pip Bin are bought to life by an effervescent ensemble of actors who are joined each week by a new famous face. The magnificent muster of guest stars includes Tom Allen, Adjoa Andoh, Alexander Armstrong, Jo Brand, Julian Clary, Jack Dee, Stephen Fry, Nish Kumar, Lee Mack, Stephen Mangan, Ben Miller, Dermot O’Leary, Sue Perkins, Sally Philips and Nina Wadia.
Don’t miss this “irresistible” (The Times) stage adaptation of the award-winning BBC Radio 4 comedy series, making its West End premiere this May. Book today and we shall see you there. Harrumble!
