Steptoe and Son Opens Our 2017 Season
We have hit our first show for 2017, and its certainly a corker!
Steptoe and Son comes back to our stage with Three Brand New Episodes!
This classic British comedy tells the story of a middle aged man and his elderly father who run an unsuccessful ‘rag and bone’ business (collecting and selling junk). Harold wants to better himself but his father always seems to ruin things, sometimes accidentally but often deliberately.
Joined at the hip and heart, they bother, bicker and banter their way through life – toying with each others’ frailties like mean kittens. Bound by birth, business and poverty, their two lives are knitted together as tight as a thrice darned sock.
Darkly comic, and deeply moving, this 20th century icon, charts the tender, cruel and surprising dance of father and son.
Showing in The Lowe Auditorium 23rd February – 18th March, 2017
