About Great Expectations
Written at a time of great social change in Britain, Charles Dicken's 19th-century novel reflects the economical and educational revolution that slowly took hold of England’s towns and countryside. When blacksmith apprentice, Pip, receives an unexpected fortune from a mysterious benefactor, he embarks on a life-changing journey to London. It is here that he learns the true cost of love and friendship.
About Eddie Izzard
Eddie Izzard ran 32 marathons in 31 days raising more than £1.6 million for Comic Relief, and she will need that endurance when she takes on 19 characters and 544 pages that make Charles Dickens Great Expectations so, well, great! Bursting onto the comedy scene in the 80s, Eddie Izzard has rarely left the stage or screen since. Izzard’s comedy special, Dressed to Kill, won two primetime Emmy Awards and she is regularly considered one of the country's most funny and unique comedians. Alongside comedy and her athletic endeavors, Eddie Izzard has also starred in a number of much-loved TV series and films, including The Chronicles of Narnia, Castles in the Sky, and Valkyrie.
