THE PERSONAL HISTORY OF DAVID COPPERFIELD


Comedy. A fresh and distinctive adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic novel ‘David Copperfield’. A haunting semi-autobiographical tale of a boy who is sent away by his stepfather after his mother dies but manages to triumph over incredible adversities.
Set in the 1840s, chronicling the life of its iconic title character as he navigates a chaotic world to find his elusive place within it. From his unhappy childhood to the discovery of his gift as a storyteller and writer, David’s journey is by turns hilarious and tragic, but always full of life, colour and humanity.
