LADIES IN LAVENDER
Based on the hit film screenplay by Charles Dance starring Judi Dench and Maggie Smith, and on the original short story by William J. Locke, Ladies In Lavender tells the tale of two sisters Ursula and Janet who live in a close-knit fishing village in picturesque Cornwall, in 1936.
When a handsome and talented young Polish violinist bound for America is washed ashore, the Widdington sisters take him under their wing and nurse him back to health. However, the presence of the mysterious young man disrupts their peaceful lives and the community in which they live.
“Shaun McKenna’s adaptation really doesn’t need any bells or whistles. Thankfully this is clearly understood by director Robin Lefevre and the talented company.” The British Theatre Guide

“It delivers perfect comic timing and hilarious lines.” Northampton Chronicle & Echo
“There’s a magical feel to this show… This is a rather brilliant production.” Daventry Express
