CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
Based on the Oscar winning film which famously starred Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman. Charlie Babbitt is a self-centred Los Angeles-based automobile dealer and hustler, who is at war with his own life. Relationships are not Charlie's strong suit and love is quite outside his experience. Raymond is the elder brother Charlie never knew he had - an autistic savant who has been hidden away in an institution for most of his adult life. Raymond is dysfunctional in many senses, but ? as Charlie is soon to discover ? also touched with a kind of stellar genius which Charlie harnesses to save his business. The two brothers embark on a rollercoaster journey together which shows Raymond a world beyond the hospital gates and Charlie the meaning of unconditional love Performers Neil Morrissey (Raymond Babbitt), Oliver Chris (Charlie Babbitt), Charles Lawson (Dr Breuner), Ruth Everett (Susan), Emma Gregory (Lucy/Sally Dibbs/Iris), Patrick Brennan (Mooney/Copy/Dr Marston).
