David Copperfield

“Whether I shall turn out to be the hero of my own life, or whether that station will be held by anybody else, these pages must show”

David Copperfield, one of the best-known works of fiction in the English language, is Charles Dickens' beloved novel based on his own difficult journey from boy to man.

Chart his turbulent development into maturity, witness the account of his birth at Blunderstone Rookery, enjoy the visits with Peggotty to the upturned boathouse in Yarmouth, suffer the cruel treatment from the Murdstones, the threat of the cane from the sadistic schoolmaster at Salem House, Mr Creakle, and even endure the excessive and repulsive 'humbleness' of Uriah Heep.

Although the novel is 900 pages in length, this delightful play speeds along at a pace bringing some of Dickens’ most memorable characters to life.

After recent successes including The Firework Maker’s Daughter, The Secret Garden and last year’s Macbeth, Interval tackles one of Charles Dickens’ best-loved stories.
