Acclaimed film director Joe Wright makes his directorial stage debut with this romantic tale of theatrical life, Trelawny Of The Wells.
Rose Trelawny is the brightest star in the firmament of the Wells, the theatre company that raised her from birth. But she’s prepared to give it all up for the love of her stage-door suitor, aristocratic Arthur. His family are less convinced of her charms, however, and her joyful challenge to their dreary, snobby existence shocks them to their core.
Wright, who himself grew up in and around Islington’s Little Angel theatre, is best known for his directorial work on the silver screen, which includes Atonement, Pride And Prejudice and Anna Karenina.
