A short season of classic one act plays written by three of the most influential, groundbreaking and highly regarded writers of the last 100 years. Spanning the 20th century, with themes, characters and situations that resonate today, these are classic plays for a modern audience.

Enjoy a spot of light lunch with a scrummy slice of quality theatre, in your local venue.

Based on Oliver Sack's memoir, Awakenings, Pinter's thought-provoking play completes Rapture's season of classic one-acts.

Deborah was a lively sixteen year old and part of a close knit family when she fell victim to a strange condition, a sleeping sickness. Twenty-nine years later, having been watched over by the same doctor, she awakens and gradually tries to adjust to the world around her. A Kind of Alaska recently had a successful run in London's West End, with Tasmin Greig and Meera Syal in the starring roles. Now, Rapture presents an unmissable brand new production of this astonishingly prescient play by one of the twentieth centuries most influential writers.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for A Kind Of Alaska are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
