From Simon Stephens, the multi-award winning writer of the stage adaptation of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and directed by twice Offie Nominated director Scott Le Crass comes Country Music.
1983, Gravesend. Jamie has committed a crime. What he doesn’t know it that this event will shape the next 20 years of his life.
Originally presented at the Royal Court in 2004, Country Music is a subtle, yet powerful play by Si-mon Stephens, whose work includes the multi award winning The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and On the Shore of The Wide World. The play was developed through visits to various prisons between 2001 and 2003.
It’s a play about protection, atonement, but also about how our experiences and circumstances can define who we are, but not necessarily who we become.
Directed by the 2 times Offie Nominated director Scott Le Crass who previous credits include Elmer (UK and International tour) Sid (UK tour) and Kicked in the Sh**ter (Hope Theatre, Theatre in the Mill, Bradford). He is a working class director who wants these voices represented on stage.
The cast includes: Cary Crankson, Rebecca Stone, Yusuf Hofri and Frances Knight.
Country Music is at Omnibus Theatre 29th May to 23rd June 2019.
