Playing at The Theatre
Fri 18th & Sun 20th Sept
Gemma Arterton, Gugu Mbatha Raw and Penelope Wilton start in this emotional journey of womanhood and self-discovery. A fiercely independent folklore investigator secludes herself in her clifftop study, debunking myths using science to disprove the existence of other-worldly forces and magic. Consumed by her work, but also profoundly lonely, she is haunted by a love affair from her past.
When spirited young Frank, an evacuee from the London Blitz, is dumped into her care, his innocence and wonder unlock deeply buried and painful secrets in Alice's past. An engaging summer drama from Olivier Award winning stage and screen director Jessica Swale.
Masks or face coverings should be worn at all times by anyone over 11 in the bar and foyer. In line with government guidance, masks may be removed in the auditorium if you are consuming food or drinks.
