THE REMAINS OF THE DAY
Based on the book by Kazuo Ishiguro
Adapted by Barney Norris
Directed by Christopher Haydon
1930s England. Darlington Hall runs like clockwork under one of the last truly great butlers. Reserved and dutiful like his father before him and with the funny and forthright housekeeper Miss Kenton by his side, Stevens faithfully serves his employer. Meanwhile, England stands on a precipice, as fascism builds and boils in Europe.
20 years later, Stevens travels to find an old friend, remembering choices made and not made, journeying to one last chance at happiness.
2017 Nobel Prize winner Kazuo Ishiguro’s novel, which became a beloved Merchant Ivory film, is a story for anyone who has ever been afraid to follow their heart.
This exquisite new stage adaptation is written by Barney Norris (Echo’s End, Salisbury Playhouse and the Salisbury-based novel Five Rivers Met on a Wooded Plain).
