TODAY'S SHOWINGS AT BARRY'S MEMO ARTS CENTRE:

The Personal History of David Copperfield (PG)
An avid Dickens fan, Armando Iannucci (the award-winning writer/director of The Thick of It, In the Loop, Veep and The Death of Stalin) adapts here, alongside frequent collaborator Simon Blackwell, employing his comedic mastery and vivid characterizations to bring to life one of Dickens’ most cherished characters in ‘The Personal History Of David Copperfield’.

From birth to infancy, from adolescence to adulthood, the good-hearted David Copperfield is surrounded by kindness, wickedness, poverty and wealth, as he meets an array of remarkable characters in Victorian England. As David sets out to be a writer, in his quest for family, friendship, romance and status, the story of his life is the most seductive tale of all.

Running time: 119

Showings: Friday 28 February 5:30pm, Saturday 29 February 2:30pm, Monday 02 March 2pm & 7:30pm, Wednesday 04 March 7pm
