The Pantaloons return to the Regal, this time bringing a fog-filled adventure in Victorian London. When a dead body is discovered in Mr Krook’s Rag-and-Bone shop, a web of mysteries starts to unravel, with far-reaching consequences.

Hilarious, tragic and romantic by turns, The Pantaloons retell Dickens’ classic novel in their own inimitable style. The company of five actor-musicians bring the novel’s cast of over 50 characters to life in a thrilling tale of love, skulduggery and spontaneous combustion.

The Pantaloons are a vibrant and anarchic theatre company whose style draws from a wide variety of popular theatre traditions from commedia dell’arte and clowning to stand-up comedy and silent movies.
