Directed by Kevin Moore

The story Dickens might have written after drinking too much gin…

Follow half-orphan Pip's extraordinary exploits with sisters Pippa and Poppy and best friend Harry Biscuit, as they attempt to escape the calculating clutches of the dastardly Mr Gently Benevolent, defeat the hideous Hardthrasher siblings, and deflect disaster at every turn!

 Will evil be vanquished by virtue? Can love triumph over hate?

A glorious, riotous, eccentric comedy set in Dickensian society with characters based on some of Dickens' most-loved novels. Fast paced and wildly funny this play has not long finished its West End run and was actually taken from the popular BBC radio 4 series. It's going to be fun!

"My name is Bakewell Havertwitch, I do not have a twitch but I do bake well."
