Show Information

Ray Galton and Alan Simpson's Steptoe and Son

Two Men. Two World Wars. Two lives knitted together as tight as a thrice darned sock. 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. 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 surprising dance of father and son. Darkly comic and deeply moving, this is a 20th century icon, reimagined for a new generation.

From its home in Cornwall, Kneehigh Theatre has built a reputation for creating vigorous and popular theatre for audiences worldwide. We’re delighted to welcome them to the Sherman for the first time.

Ages 12+

"...playful but powerful"
The Journal

"...deeply moving and thought provoking"
The Good Review

"All three actors deliver their roles perfectly, capturing the sense of play with comic moments such as Shepherd playacting Dracula, but also the prevailing tragedy."
***** Varsity

"Kneehigh stands head and shoulders above most other touring companies in Britain."
The Daily Telegraph
