This stage adaptation of Steptoe and Son comes to Darwen Library Theatre this March with John Hewer (Harold Steptoe) and Jeremy Smith (Albert Steptoe) playing the roles made famous by Wilfrid Brambell and Harry H Corbett.
Albert and Harold; father and son. One proclaims he’s “a poor old man” while the other protests that 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.
The popular BBC television show – which ran from 1962 to 1974 – was set in the home of the two rag-and-bone men in Oil Drum Lane in London’s Shepherd’s Bush and Steptoe and Son quickly built up a huge following. In the 1970s it inspired two spin-off films and a US version, Sanford and Son.
Now it’s time to relive some of their finest misadventures through this unique stage production. Marking fifty-six 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 sitcom.
Features the classic episodes: Divided We Stand, Men of Letters and Come Dancing.
