Edinburgh Fringe production Miss Havisham’s Expectations is transferring to London in December alongside new production Sikes and Nancy.

They form a back-to-back double bill of Charles Dickens-inspired theatre titled Dickens with a Difference.

Originally staged at the 2012 fringe, Miss Havisham’s Expectations will see Linda Marlowe return to play the leading role, with writer Di Sherlock directing.

Sikes and Nancy will solely star James Swanton and recounts the story of the doomed lovers in Oliver Twist. The production is inspired by Dickens’ own dramatic readings.

The hour long plays will be performed one after the other at Trafalgar Studios from December 9 to January 3, with a press night on December 12.

Miss Havisham’s Expectations is being produced by Julie Clare for One Spirit Productions, while Sikes and Nancy is being produced by Jimmy Jewell in association with Andrew Thomas Theatricals and the Production Exchange.
