Ladies in Lavender  

Adapted for stage by Shaun McKenna

Based on the film written and directed by Charles Dance

From a short story by William J Locke

This amateur production of 'Ladies in Lavender' is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD

It is 1936. The Widdington sisters have lived in their Cornish seaside cottage all their lives. Suddenly, into their serene and undemanding lives comes a stranger washed ashore from a shipwreck.

The ladies revive him, take him into their home, nurse him and eventually restore him to good health. In time it becomes clear that his future lies in the concert halls of the world. But when he leaves to fulfil his destiny, he leaves behind at least one broken heart.

This lovely play has been developed from the screenplay of the delightful film of the same name which starred Maggie Smith and Judi Dench.

Quote from the play: "You give me life. Now I have chance to use it.”

Directed by Jay Cundell Walker
