Eddie Izzard: Great Expectations
Time Out says
Comedy legend Izzard returns with a one-man stage version of Dickens’s sprawling classic
Ah, another knowingly whimsical show name from Eddie Izzard: but what is ‘Great Expectations’ really about? Nope: arch surrealist Izzard really is doing a one-man-version of the quintessential Victorian novel as his contribution to Riverside Studios’s socially distanced Christmas season. There’s no official running time yet, but we’re assuming it’s the edited highlights rather than a blow-by-blow allnighter. Still, no matter how many laughs Izzard milks it for – and we’re assuming quite a few – it’s being billed as an earnest endeavor.
