A WLT spokeswoman said: “So much of its popularity lies in the extraordinary range of characters encountered by David throughout the story, including Betsy Trotwood, his eccentric aunt, the unforgettable Mr Micawber, forever reckoning on the brink of financial disaster and – surely Dickens’s most repellent villain – the ever so ‘umble, Uriah Heap.”

The play runs from July 5 to 15
