AN ICONIC radio show will be brought to life on stage.

Hambledon Productions and Apollo Theatre Company are bringing Steptoe and Son Radio Show to The Beggar’s Theatre in Millom.

The show is billed as: “Albert and Harold; father and son, rag-and-bone. The father proclaims he’s ‘a poor old man’ while the son protests that his dad is ‘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.”

Marking 60 years since the first ever broadcast, life will be brought back into the Steptoe household with this fresh and hilarious adaptation of three, original episodes from the long-running smash hit BBC sitcom, faithfully recreating a live radio recording and reliving some of the Steptoe’s finest misadventures.

The show will take place on October 15.
