Publisher's Summary

Featuring a big name cast including, Anthony Head, Celia Imrie, Geoffrey Whitehead, Richard Johnson,Tom Allen and James Bachman. Bleak Expectations is the remarkable adventures of young Philip Bin as he struggles to rescue himself and his sisters from the plotting of his guardian, the scheming, evil and badly-named Mr Gently Benevolent, and the blood-curdling Hardthrasher brothers.
A Victorian epic of awful schools inc the aptly named St Bastards, worse prisons, nuns at St Bitches, giant rabbits, and long lost super-hero aunts, in the style of Charles Dickens after far too much gin.
If you liked Blackadder than this historial romp is very much up your street.
