English Touring Theatre and York Theatre Royal present the world premiere of Evelyn Waugh's classic novel Brideshead Revisited, reimagined for the stage by Tony Award® nominee Bryony Lavery (Frozen) and Olivier Award® winning director Damian Cruden (The Railway Children).
During the midst of World War II, Captain Charles Ryder finds his past and present blur as he confronts memories of his first youthful encounter with the Marchmain family at Brideshead Castle. Falling under the spell of their privileged lives, Charles looks back at the way his own life would be changed forever by the summers spent with the seemingly charming Sebastian and his beautiful sister Julia.
Don’t miss the first large-scale stage adaptation of the evocative and timeless story that hascaptured audiences' imaginations for over seventy years.
