An award-winning production of an Oscar-nominated classic is being staged at the Chester Little Theatre on Saturday, November 29 at 7.30pm.
The one night only performance is the final date of the national tour by White Cobra Productions, after it scooped no less than eight awards earlier this year in two arts festivals.
Days of Wine and Roses by Owen McCafferty is a modern reworking of the classic film by JP Miller which starred Hollywood legends Jack Lemmon and Lee Remick. The play is set in the 1960s, and tells the story of couple moving from Belfast to London in search of a better life.
One drink is all it takes to change the lives of Donal and Mona, and the play examines the way each of them deals with a relationship that becomes almost too powerful to bear.
The play was a huge hit when first produced at the Donmar Warehouse in London and now White Cobra founders Kate Billingham and Richard Jordan play the central couple.
Both have won best actor awards and the production has twice been voted best play in arts festivals.
Regulars to the Little Theatre may recall White Cobra Productions’ previous visits to the theatre with Scaramouche Jones and Hancock’s Last Half Hour.
Tickets for the performance are £10, £9 concessions and available online at www.chestertheatreclub.co.uk or on the door.
