Brideshead Revisited - the first large-scale stage adaptation touring Spring 2016
22 February 2016
We are delighted to announce our forthcoming production of Brideshead Revisited, Evelyn Waugh’s classic novel, a co-production with York Theatre Royal.
Adapted by Bryony Lavery and directed by Damian Crudden this production will be the first large-scale stage adaptation of Waugh’s classic novel, which will go on a National tour in Spring 2016.
On Brideshead Revisited, Rachel Tackley, artistic director of ETT said: "The combination of Waugh's delightful text, Bryony's talent and Damian's skill for storytelling makes for a marvellous cocktail, one which I am sure audiences across the UK will enjoy."
She went on to say that the first ever tour of The Herbal Bed comes at an apt time: "In the 400th year after Shakespeare's death our industry will pay homage to the Bard by staging many of his works. In that regard it is a somewhat mischievous choice to do a play about his daughter."
It will open at York Theatre Royal on 26th April before touring to Bath, Southampton, Cambridge, Malvern, Brighton and Oxford.
