Wed 15 - Sat 18 Nov, Guildhall Theatre comedy
by Mark Evans
Leave logic at home and escape with a very silly romp through the Dickensian universe.
Follow half-orphan Pip Bin as he ricochets across Dickensian England, attempting to evade his evil nemesis Mr Gently Benevolent. Can Pip, his sisters Pippa and Poppy, and best friend Harry Biscuit overcome hardship and misfortune to secure their own happy ending?
If you can’t already tell, this is a lovingly ludicrous parody of Charles Dickens, complete with extravagant names, quintessentially British reactions to disaster and heart-fluttering romance.
Based on the award-winning BBC Radio 4 series, this play is fresh from the West End and GDS has secured another regional premiere.
