Watch Dickens’ classic tale of inheritance, mystery and
obsession, surrounded by three miles of bookshelves

that’s when her life really begins…

This new musical adaptation, features live music, song and five actors playing multiple roles in the interweaving worlds of foggy London, the haunted Dedlock Manor in Lincolnshire and Bleak House.
