Steptoe & Son


A production by Hambledon Productions, who last year brought us 'Just Like That', the Tommy Cooper Show.

This show has particular appeal to those who remember the perennial BBC sitcom (1962-1974), classic British comedy and comedy-dramas such as the work of Pinter, Ayckbourn and Coward.

This production has been fully endorsed and supported by the original writers. Commemorating 55 years since the very first broadcast, Hambledon Productions have been granted exclusive access to the entire ‘Steptoe and Son’ archive to adapt a range of episodes for the stage in this nostalgic but fresh recreation of original episodes.

About the Show

Albert and Harold; father and son. One proclaims he’s “a poor old man” while the other protests that actually he’s “a dirty old man!” In actual fact, both are telling the truth. These two warring rag-and-bone-men, in their Shepherd’s Bush scrapyard home, became
household favourites for entire generations throughout the 60s and 70s and still they continue to entertain audiences today.

Now it’s time to relive some of their finest misadventures through this brand new production.
Marking fifty-five years since the show’s first ever broadcast, Hambledon Productions (Hancock’s Half Hour – The Lost Episodes, Educating Rita, Just Like That! The Tommy Cooper Show) breathe life back into the Steptoe household with this faithful, fresh and hilarious adaptation of original episodes from the long-running smash hit BBC sitcom.

Features the classic episodes: Divided We Stand, Men of Letters and Come Dancing and excerpts from The Bath and Steptoe and Son – and Son!
