For those unfamiliar with the premise, Bleak Expectations is a BBC Radio 4 comedy series, written by Mark Evans, which is a spoof the works of Charles Dickens.

A stage adaptation premiered at the Watermill Theatre last year and it has now opened on London’s West End at the Criterion Theatre, under the direction of Caroline Leslie.

A number of guest stars are set to play the role of the narrator during the run – on press night we had Sally Phillips, with the role variously being filled by the likes of Sue Perkins, Stephen Fry and Jo Brand over the summer.

Bleak Expectations provides a cosy evening of easy, lighthearted entertainment – it plays on incredibly well-known material to provide some amusing silliness.
