Two-time winner of the Best Radio Sitcom award and winner of a Sony Award, Bleak Expectations is a chaotic caper through Dickensian London.

Will evil be vanquished by virtue? Can love triumph over hate? Immerse yourself in this joyfully anarchic comedy featuring hideous boarding schools, dastardly plans, devilish disguises, pulse-quickening romances, heart-rending death scenes, and definitely a happy ending.
