Steptoe and Son

Details

The Coronation Hall is very excited to welcome: Hambledon Productions Proudly Present – Ray Galton and Alan Simpson’s Steptoe and Son.

Adapted by John Hewer

Albert and Harold; father and son.

One proclaims he’s “a poor old man” while the other protests that actually he’s “a dirty old man!”

In actual fact, both are telling the truth. These two warring rag-and-bone-men, in their Shepherd’s Bush scrapyard home, became household favourites for entire generations throughout the 60s and 70s and still they continue to entertain audiences today.

Now it’s time to relive some of their finest misadventures through this brand new production. Marking fifty-five years since the show’s first ever broadcast, Hambledon Productions (Hancock’s Half Hour – The Lost Episodes, Educating Rita, Just Like That! The Tommy Cooper Show) breathe life back into the Steptoe household with this faithful, fresh and hilarious adaptation of original episodes from the long-running smash hit BBC sitcom.

“The affection for the original shines through in this fine production. I’m delighted that the scripts and the characters continue to be cherished after all this time. The performances are marvellous.” – Ray Galton

“This energetic adaptation of some of Steptoe’s funniest, filthiest moments is the loveliest and most vibrant of tributes to Alan Simpson and Ray Galton” – Robert Ross (Comedy Historian)ost vibrant of tributes to Alan Simpson and Ray Galton

Features the classic episodes: Divided We Stand, Men of Letters and Come Dancing.
