Abstract:

"Charles Dickens' beloved masterpiece is recreated for the stage with the unforgettable characters and enthralling story of the famous original. Young David Copperfield has a happy childhood until his widowed mother weds the stern Mr. Murdstone, who separates David from his caring nurse, Peggotty, and sends him to school far away. When Mrs. Copperfield dies, little David must make his way in London. Helped by the merry Micawber family and his eccentric aunt, Betsey Trotwood, David grows up to become a writer. But even his adult years are challenged by the conniving clerk Uriah Heep, his betraying friend James Steerforth, and others. David gets to wed Dora, whom he worships, but their marriage is also challenged, and Dora's premature death leads David to discover his true character and position in life. Among the other memorable Dickens characters to appear are crusty but determined Dan Peggotty; nerdy but faithful friend Tom Traddles; vicious spinster Miss Murdstone; simple-minded but lovable Mr. Dick; understanding Agnes Wickfield; tragic Emily; vengeful Miss Dartle; and honest and selfless fisherman, Ham."--Publisher's website.
