Classic Galton and Simpson comedy Steptoe & Son is heading to Leicester’s Curve theatre.
The show will open on Tuesday 12th February and run until Sat 16th February. Adapted and directed by Emma Rice, Steptoe & Son is a new co-production between long-time collaborators Kneehigh and West Yorkshire Playhouse.
Mike Shepherd and Dean Nolan will play Albert and Harold respectively. Steptoe & Son charts the tender, cruel and surprising dance of father and son.
Emma Rice commented on the project, ‘The words, situations and basic genius of this script are all the work and imagination of Ray Galton and Alan Simpson. I laughed and wept in equal measure as I made my way through the scripts that make up the Steptoe and Son cannon. The work is deeper, darker and more intricate than I’d ever realised, watching as a child.’
