“I can’t undo what’s been said. My world changed this morning. I hope for the better, but we’ll see in the future.”
The Coronet Theatre presents an enlightening, cathartic and acerbic new play about identity, maturity and reconciliation from influential playwright Robert Holman, starring Penny Downie, Sylvestra Le Touzel, Matthew Tennyson and Iniki Mariano, and directed by Geraldine Alexander.
Sisters Dolly and Esther grow up in ultra-conservative Harrogate in the ‘60s. 50 years later, following the death of their mother, Dolly comes to stay with Esther – now a successful novelist and living in Little Venice with her younger, inscrutable lodger, Jude. The three go to Norway to meet the rock star grandfather Jude has only ever heard about. Instead, he meets Anila who changes his world. To make a new future these four people will have to be honest, heal old wounds and two sisters learn to laugh together again.
Robert Holman is a stalwart of British theatre, with his extensive writing career including commissions from The Royal Court, the Bush and the RSC. His play A Breakfast of Eels was produced at The Coronet Theatre in 2015.
