The cast of Fringe favourite Shakespeare for Breakfast invite you for dinner with a Dickensian twist! Dickens for Dinner returns to Edinburgh after last year’s debut to take on the Victorian classic, Great Expectations. Join us for a deliciously daring look at this classic British author, with a feverishly funny flavour. Who says literature can’t make you laugh? Sit down for a truly surreal repast. Dickens goes delirious. Come see what the Pickwick Papers have been raving about. Free soup! ‘Carousing comedy’ ***** (RemoteGoat.com). ‘One of the funniest, silliest Fringe shows’ ***** (AYoungerTheatre.com). ‘Irreverent comedy’ **** (FringeGuru.com).
