SUMMARY

Bound together by birth, business and bloody bad luck, Albert and Harold Steptoe wake up every morning to the same old, same old, sickening sight of each other. Joined at the hip and heart, they bother, bicker and banter their way through life – toying with each other’s frailties like mean kittens. Do they even notice the world turning as they cling on? There are ladies if they would only look around them, and space travel… and Cliff Richard!

Adapted from the legendary scripts of Galton and Simpson, Steptoe and Son charts the tender, cruel and surprising dance of father and son. Kneehigh, the masters of magical storytelling, make a welcome return following Brief Encounter, The Red Shoes and The Wild Bride with this darkly comic and deeply moving 20th century icon, reimagined for the new millennium.
