Riel Theatre presents: Bleak Expectations Series 4 (Ep 5 & 6)

This week we con­tin­ue the com­e­dy series that may best be described as “Charles Dick­ens meets The Goon Show.”

Writ­ten by Mark Evans, more recent­ly known for the TV series The Bleak Old Shop of Stuff

Star­ring Richard John­son — Sir Philip (“Pip”) Bin
Tom Allen — Young Pip
Susy Kane — Pip­pa Bin
Antho­ny Head — Mr Gen­tly Benev­o­lent; Jere­my Sourquill
James Bach­man — Har­ry Bis­cuit
Mark Evans — Mr Wyck­ham-Post-For­bur­ton.…, Thomas’ lawyer whose full name took 20 min­utes to say and to whom — since he charged by the hour — “his name was his great­est asset”; Revd Super­mar­ket; Wait­er; Dr Cure-Some-By-Chance; sundry boys, gen­tle­men and chavvies
Sarah Had­land — Lily, Sir Phillip’s daugh­ter
Geof­frey White­head — the entire dynasty of var­i­ous evil fam­i­lies with equal­ly unpleas­ant names.

This week “A Now Tricky Life Woe­ful­ly Mis­eried Up” and “A Life Destroyed Then Repaired and Rehap­pied”.

Pip and Har­ry have escaped the explod­ing desert island, but Har­ry has been trans­formed into a dinosaur. Now they must catch Mis­ter Benev­o­lent and pre­vent him tak­ing over the world, but the trail has led them to France. Here they must face unimag­in­able hor­rors includ­ing a bacon-free break­fast and a dead­ly con­fronta­tion in a cheese mine. But there is a glim­mer of hope in the form of The Scar­let Pim­ple.
