by Charles Dickens adapted for the stage by Alastair Cording

25 June to 4 July 2020

One of Dickens's most autobiographical stories, beautifully dramatised by Alastair Cording while retaining all the drama and humour of the original book. David Copperfield has a happy childhood until his widowed mother remarries the severe Mr Murdstone. When Mrs Copperfield dies, young David must make his way in London and lodges with Mr Wickfield, a lawyer, and befriends his gentle daughter, Agnes. David becomes infatuated with the sweet Dora Spenlow, but as they discover, it takes more than love to make a marriage last. Along the way we meet many of Dickens's marvellous creations: the caring Clara Peggotty, the jolly Micawber family, the sinister Uriah Heep, and David’s eccentric aunt, Betsey Trotwood. By the end justice is served, the innocent reprieved, and loving devotion reciprocated and rewarded.

This production of David Copperfield will be going to The Minack Theatre, Cornwall for performances 27th - 31st July 2020.

Box Office opens 23 March (members); 6 April (non-members)
