Bleak House – A Radio Play
When a dead body is discovered in Mr Krook’s Rag-and-Bone shop, a web of mysteries starts to untangle, with far-reaching consequences. Hilarious, tragic and romantic by turns, Dickens’ darkly comic masterpiece is retold by The Pantaloons in their own inimitable style.
The Pantaloons formed in 2004 and have since toured extensively and prolifically, growing in popularity, if not stature, each year. Like a tiny mushroom that has become very popular but is bad at similies. You can find out what we got up to in the past by clicking on the link below!
