Steptoe & Son
Tue 6 Nov to Sat 10 Nov 2012
£21 - £10
Two Men. Two World Wars.
Two lives knitted together as tight as a thrice darned sock.
Bound together by birth, business and bloody bad luck, Albert and Harold Steptoe wake up every morning to the same old, same old, sickening sight of each other. Joined at the hip and heart, they bother, bicker and banter their way through life - toying with each other’s frailties like mean kittens.
Adapted from the legendary scripts of Galton and Simpson, this new production charts the tender, cruel and surprising dance of father and son. Darkly comic, and deeply moving, this is a 20th century icon, re imagined for the next generation.
