The Shawshank Redemption

at the Theatre Royal Bath

on Monday 27th March at 7.30pm

From Monday 27th March to Saturday 1st April, Joe Absolom (Doc Martin, EastEnders, The Bay) and Ben Onwukwe (RSC, London’s Burning, Professor T) star in the iconic lead roles of Andy Dufresne and Ellis ‘Red’ Redding in The Shawshank Redemption. 

 

When banker Andy is handed a double life-sentence for the brutal murder of his wife and her lover, his protests of innocence are unflinching. Incarcerated at the notorious Shawshank penitentiary, he quickly learns that no one can survive alone. Andy strikes up an unlikely friendship with the prison fixer Red and things take a slight turn for the better. However, when Warden Stammas decides to bully Andy into subservience and exploit his talents for accountancy, a desperate plan is quietly hatched.

 

The classic 1994 film of The Shawshank Redemption is regularly voted as one of the best in cinema history and was nominated for seven Academy Awards. Based on the 1982 novella Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption by celebrated author Stephen King, the stage adaptation of The Shawshank Redemption examines desperation, injustice, friendship and hope behind the claustrophobic bars of a maximum-security facility. This new production is directed by award-winning Broadway director David Esbjornson and adapted by Owen O’Neill and Dave Johns.
