Great Expectations - Charles Dickens' classic is next up at Coventry's Belgrade Theatre

THE BELGRADE Theatre has announced its next programme of live shows, following the sell-out success of Dr Blood’s Old Travelling Show this month.

Next up on November 13 Kneehigh Theatre’s David Mynne will revisit a literary talking classic with his one-man telling of Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations.

The joyful and anarchic version was adapted for the stage by Andrew McPherson and was originally performed in 2013.

So much was its success it toured extensively across the UK and abroad, receiving rave reviews.

A wide range of productions will be staged at the venue with rigorous safety measures in place, including regular cleaning, contactless payment and e-ticketing.

With Tier 2 restrictions now in place in the city visitors are reminded they must be socially distanced from anyone not in their household or bubble.

Masks must also be worn inside the building except when seated.

Other productions heading to The Belgrade include Yvan Silva’s Crazy Little Thing Called Queen on November 28, Murder She Wrote on December 2 and then some festive offerings as Christmas approaches.
