Inspired by the heart-warming Oscar-winning film, Bill Kenwright presents the inaugural Classic Screen to Stage Theatre Company production of Rain Man.
TWO BROTHERS. ONE DESTINY.
When self-centered salesman Charlie Babbitt discovers that his long-lost brother Raymond, an autistic savant with a genius for numbers, has inherited the family fortune, he sets out to get ‘his half’.
Charlie ‘borrows’ Raymond from the institution where he has spent most of his life and the two brothers embark on a trip across America where Charlie soon discovers that Raymond is worth more than he could have ever imagined…
Mathew Horne stars as Raymond Babbit opposite Ed Speleers as Charlie Babbit.
Mathew is best known for playing Gavin in the much-loved, double BAFTA winning comedy series Gavin and Stacey, as well as the BBC series The Catherine Tate Show. Ed starred as Jimmy Kent in the Golden Globe award-winning series Downton Abbey and he has just been announced as joining the cast of Outlander.
Joining them are Mairi Barclay (Pippin), Hannah Barker, Elizabeth Carter (Dreamboats and Petticoats), Adam Lilley (The 39 Steps), Neil Roberts (Mamma Mia!) and Joe Sellman Leava (Monster).
The production will be directed by Jonathan O’Boyle whose credits include Rasheeda Speaking (Trafalgar Studios), This House (UK Tour); Pippin (Hope Mill Theatre/Southwark Playhouse); and Hair (Hope Mill Theatre/The Vaults) winner of the WhatsOnStage Award for Best Off West End Production.
*Please note: this production contains very strong language and adult themes*

"Top marks to director Jonathan O'Boyle... we laughed, we cried" MAIDENHEAD ADVERTISER
"One of the best nights out anyone can have."
SLOUGH AND SOUTH BUCK OBSERVER
“We loved this play. We watched it with baited breath, we laughed a lot, and felt uplifted. Good performances like this are refreshment for the spirit, an infusion of happiness. Like Raymond, I won’t forget a moment of it”
“It’s touching to watch their bond grow and, by the end, we’re left with tears in our eyes before the entire audience stands and applause - demonstrating just how affecting a production this is”
