Previous Production: 8 - 23 February 2013
A fast-paced, innovative take on one of Dickens’s best loved novels, a faithfully dramatised adaptation which captures the very essence of a young boy’s journey into manhood.
This semi-autobiographical tale is packed full of unforgettable characters including Uriah Heep, Peggotty and Steerforth.
Scattered with pathos, but ultimately uplifting, David Copperfield comes from the heart of one of this country’s greatest ever writers.
