★★★★ “Glorious” – Telegraph

Following a sold-out New York run Eddie Izzard returns to the West End stage for six weeks only.

Izzard plays all 19 characters in Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations, a classic tale of convicts, mystery, friendship, rivalry, unrequited love, revenge, and redemption.

Actor, comedian, and multi-marathon runner Eddie Izzard’s boundary-pushing career spans all of these with record-breaking comedy tours and critically acclaimed film, TV, and theatre performances. But few know that acting was her first love.

This one-woman show offers the chance to see Eddie in a solo performance of the master storyteller’s beloved epic, Great Expectations.

Great Expectations is running at the Garrick Theatre until 1 July 2023.
