The critically-acclaimed Pantaloons proudly present an affectionately anarchic adaptation of Charles Dickens’ captivating coming-of-age chronicle.

Join Pip the orphan on a journey through his eventful life via hilarious turns and tragic twists; filled with escaped convicts, eccentric spinsters, mysterious benefactors and gut-wrenching heartbreak.

All retold by The Pantaloons in their own inimitable style.

A company of four actor-musicians bring the novel’s cast of characters to life in a thrilling tale of, well, great expectations – and crushing disappointment.

Dickens larger-than-life characters and playful, self-reflexive prose lend themselves to the company’s unique brand of anarchic physical storytelling; a style that synthesises clowning, improvisation and live music to create truly unmissable shows.

The critically-acclaimed Pantaloons began life almost two decades ago as an open-air theatre company, busking plays for donations in parks and on the streets, where they developed an attention-grabbing, interactive and playful performance style.

Tickets: £14 / £12 Concession
