Actor, writer and comedian Stephen Fry has joined the cast of comedy Bleak Expectations at the Criterion Theatre in London.
This is the final week for the production, which must end this Sunday on 13 August 2023.
Throughout the run, guest narrators have taken to the stage each week including Nina Wadia, Dermot O’Leary, Sally Phillps, Robert Lindsay, Sue Perkins, Julian Clary, Andjoa Andoh, Craig Ferguson, Lee Mack, Stephen Mangan, Hugh Dennis, Tom Allen, Jack Dee and Alexander Armstrong.
Adapted from the hugely successful and award-winning BBC Radio 4 comedy, Bleak Expectations transferred into the West End from The Watermill Theatre.
Each week an a-list guest star has taken on the role of narrator in the show, which follows young Pip’s extraordinary exploits with sisters Pippa and Poppy plus 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!
Bleak Expectations is written by Mark Evans and directed by Caroline Leslie.
