Riel Theatre presents: Bleak Expectations Series 5 (Ep 1 & 2)

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, Ripely Fecund

This week “A Pleas­ant Yet Dull Life Re-Evilled” and “A Re-Excit­ed Life Made Dis­tinct­ly Dan­ger­ous”.

Pip Bin is begin­ning to miss the con­flict with his absent evil neme­sis Mr Gen­tly Benev­o­lent when he receives an intrigu­ing invi­ta­tion to a house par­ty with Britain’s posh­est man, the Baron-Vis­count-Mar­qu-earl-et the Lord-Dukey Clam­pvul­ture of Too-Many Titles. But one of the oth­er guests may not be all he seems.
