Based on Oliver Sack’s memoir,
Awakenings, Pinter’s thought-provoking
play completes Rapture’s season of
classic one-acts.

Deborah was a lively
sixteen year old and part of a close knit
family when she fell victim to a strange
condition, a sleeping sickness. Twentynine
years later, having been watched
over by the same doctor, she awakens
and gradually tries to adjust to the world
around her.

A Kind of Alaska recently had
a successful run in London’s West End,
with Tamsin Greig and Meera Syal in the
starring roles. Now, Rapture presents an
unmissable brand new production of this
astonishingly prescient play by one of
the twentieth centuries most influential
writers.
