ROUGH CROSSING DOCKS AT GRAND THEATRE
Bill Kenwright presents the long-awaited return of Tom Stoppard’s Rough Crossing at Leeds Grand Theatre from Monday 1 to Saturday 6 April 2019.
Written by Academy, Tony and Olivier award-winning writer Stoppard and directed by acclaimed director Rachel Kavanaugh, Rough Crossing tells the tale of two famous but desperate playwrights stuck in an ocean liner headed for New York. Feverishly trying to rehearse their latest show before reaching land (and opening night), they are constantly distracted by their delicate composer’s attempts to end it all, having overheard his lover confess her feelings to the leading man. Add an absurdly unorthodox waiter, a mistimed lifeboat drill and a vanishing glass of brandy and soon the sharp Atlantic winds turn to world-class gales of laughter as these colourful characters become tangled up in a typically Stoppardian string of absurd events.
The star cast is led by John Partridge; winner of this year’s Celebrity Masterchef and one of musical theatre’s most prolific leading men.
Joining Partridge is one of musical theatre’s brightest stars, Olivier-award nominee Charlie Stemp and West End star Issy van Randwyck , comedy TV favourite Matthew Cottle , Holby City’s Rob Ostlere and Simon Dutton who portrayed Simon Templar in The Saint.
Rough Crossing is at Leeds Grand Theatre from Monday 1 to Saturday 6 April 2019
