In 1962 Steptoe and Son arrived on television screens and became an institution. Originally featured as a one-off episode in Galton and Simpson’s Comedy Playhouse, several series followed over two decades, spawning movies and worldwide theatrical tours. Fifty years on, Kneehigh have brought a renewed adaptation of Steptoe and Son to the West Yorkshire Playhouse, adapting four classic episodes into a full-length show.
