Despite protests of his innocence, Andy Dufresne is handed a double life sentence for the brutal murder of his wife and her lover. Incarcerated at the notorious Shawshank facility, 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, a desperate plan is quietly hatched.
Based on the 1982 novella Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption, this thrilling stage production examines desperation, injustice, friendship and hope behind the claustrophobic bars of a maximum security facility. The 1994 feature film starred Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman and was nominated for seven Academy Awards.

Ben Onwukwe boasts a 30 year stage career including leading roles with The RSC and the Royal Court, and eleven years on TV as Recall McKenzie in London’s Burning. Jack Ellis is maybe ‘best hated’ for his portrayal of the villainous prison warden Jim Fenner in ITV’s Bad Girls, and as D.I. Tony Muddyman in Prime Suspect.
