A delightfully quirky adaptation of Dickens’s beloved novel from satirist Armando Iannucci. From birth to infancy and adolescence to adulthood, the good-hearted David Copperfield is surrounded by kindness and wickedness as he meets an array of remarkable characters in Victorian England. A semi-autobiographical tale of poverty and class, energised through breathless staging and outstanding performances from an ensemble of British talent.
