Brighton Rock at the Everyman Theatre


Brighton Rock at the Everyman Theatre

A show earning rave reviews nationally is heading this way and will be on the Everyman stage at the end of the month from 27 - 31 March.
 
Brighton Rock, based on the classic Graham Greene novel, has been brilliantly adapted for the stage by acclaimed writer, Bryony Lavery.
 
Fred is found dead - They deny it was murder. Rose is in love - They say she's in danger. And that boy, Pinkie...they say he's evil - but what has he done?
 
As two seventeen year olds, Pinkie and Rose get embroiled in a vicious gang war in Brighton, one brutal murder leads to the next. The police are impassive - but the courageous and life embracing Ida Arnold wants the truth. Nothing scares her. Whatever the cost, she'll see justice is done.
 
Pilot Theatre and York Theatre Royal have created an unmissable new version of this gripping noir thriller.  Bryony Lavery is a Tony Award nominee and her credits include Her Aching Heart; Frozen (which stars Suranne Jones) and Treasure Island.
 
She said: "Brighton Rock is such a treasure chest of narrative delights. It has got everything...It's a love story, a revenge tragedy, a small-town murder mystery, an array of small-time gangsters and a middle-aged woman who knows no fear and who will stop at nothing to do right. In the poisoned relationship between Pinkie and Rose, there is one of the best accounts ever of what it is like to be 16 and 17 years' old in a terrible, violent, adolescence."
 
The production will feature a specially composed soundtrack by the Northern Irish artist, singer and electronic composer Hannah Peel.

Tickets are priced at £18-£30 via the Everyman Theatre Box Office or online.
