Happy opening to Eddie Izzard's solo show Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations! A stage adaptation of Dickens' iconic novel written by Izzard's brother Mark, the play features many of the English author's most popular characters—all of whom are portrayed by the celebrated stand-up and Tony nominee. TDF talked to the Izzard siblings and director Selina Cadell about putting a Pip in Izzard's step and transforming a literary classic into theatre.
