David Copperfield at Oldham Coliseum

David Copperfield at Oldham Coliseum Theatre next month will be a fast-paced innovative take on one of Dickens’s best-loved and most autobiographical novels.

Alastair Cording’s adaptation squeezes the best bits of the original 700-page novel into an evening of theatre capturing the brilliance of the storytelling.

The cast is made up of a host of Coliseum regulars including: Robin Simpson (The Hound of the Baskervilles), Kieran Buckeridge (Curtain Up at the Coliseum, Dick Barton: Special Agent), Tim Treslove (The Memory of Water) Jo Mousley (The Road to Nab End), Helen Kay (Deathtrap) and Isabel Ford (Kes).
