A stage adaptation of Steptoe and Son by Kneehigh and West Yorkshire Playhouse will premiere this summer.
The story, which follows the relationship of a father and son, has been adapted by Emma Rice from the scripts of Ray Galton and Alan Simpson. Rice will also direct the production, which will run at the Asylum in Cornwall from July 21 before a stint at the West Yorkshire Playhouse from September 14 ahead of a UK tour.
Mike Shepherd will play Albert and Dean Nolan will take the role of Harold.
Rice said: “I’ve tried to enable and reveal the heart-breaking and perfectly observed characters that had generations glued to their TV’s for over a decade. I am so lucky. I feel I am walking through history â€“ my parents’, my grandparents’ and my own. It has been the chance of a lifetime to dive into such an iconic and important body of work.”
