David Copperfield

By Charles Dickens, Adapted for the Stage by Alastair Cording
Directed by Chris Honer

One of Dickens’s best-loved and most autobiographical stories, brilliantly and faithfully dramatized, with all his marvellous creations of kindness and cruelty; Mr Micawber, Uriah Heep, Mrs Peggotty, Murdstone, Steerforth and Betsy Trotwood. Weaving through the colourful maze of the storyline is David’s hopeless infatuation with Emily – and eventual salvation in the arms of the long suffering Agnes.

‘One of the cleverest adaptations you are likely to see’ — Ipswich Evening Star

‘All the drama, pathos and humour of David Copperfield’s eventful young life are vividly realised in this enthralling adaptation’ — The Stage
