The Shawshank Redemption - don't use

Celebrating the 21st anniversary of the nation’s favourite movie. Fear will hold you prisoner hope can set you free. Bill Kenwright presents a new stage production inspired by the classic film The Shawshank Redemption

Based on the short novel by Stephen King
Adapted by Owen O’Neill and Dave Johns
Directed by David Esbjornson

Based on the 1982 novella Rita Hayworth and The Shawshank Redemption, the play examines desperation, injustice, friendship and hope behind the claustrophobic bars of a maximum security facility. The 1994 feature film, regularly voted Britain’s favourite ever movie, starred Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman and was nominated for seven Academy Awards.

Two of TV’s best loved leading men, Ian Kelsey (Doctors, Casualty and Emmerdale) and Patrick Robinson (Casualty, Midsomer Murders), star in this thrilling new production of The Shawshank Redemption.

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 and exploit his talents for accountancy, a desperate plan is quietly hatched…

Contains strong language and adult content.  Recommended age 15+
