Adapted by playwright Ian Mairs from the beloved classic by Charles Dickens, On My Own, brings to life the trials and tribulations of David Copperfield as he struggles to find his way in the world. The play focuses on the early chapters of Dickens' masterwork. It is particularly suited for young audiences as it deals with David's struggles from boyhood to early adolescence. Moving at a playful pace, this ninety-minute entertainment is peopled with a funhouse of Dickens' colorful and outrageous villains and clowns. Orphaned at a young age, David finds himself at the mercy of a cold-hearted stepfather, a merciless schoolmaster and gang of rogues and charlatans. There are also small acts of kindness rendered upon Copperfield by his nanny (Peggotty), a friendly schoolmate (Tommy Trattles) and a dotty but kindhearted aunt by the name of Betsy Trotwood. Ultimately, compassion and kindness triumph in On My Own, but only after young David experiences the cruelty of the world.
