Craig Gibbons 30th Oct, 2017

ORIGINALLY produced at the Almeida and following an acclaimed run in London’s West End, Tom Kempinski’s multi award-winning play Duet for One tours the UK and makes a stop off at Malvern Theatres.

In this powerful and deeply moving play, Stephanie Abrahams (Belinda Lang), a brilliant concert violinist who seemingly has it all, is forced to re-evaluate her life when struck down by an unforeseen tragedy.

Faced with a truth too difficult to comprehend she consults psychiatrist Dr Feldmann (Oliver Cotton) and through a series of highly charged encounters is led to examine her deepest emotions and finally to consider a future without music.

Two of British theatre’s finest actors rise to the challenge of portraying this duel between two razor sharp minds and the wry humour that underlines their relationship.

Tom Kempinski’s dazzling play emerges as a gripping, poignantly funny and ultimately life- enhancing tribute to the human spirit.

Oliver Cotton has played leading roles at the Royal National Theatre, the Royal Shakespeare Company and in London’s West End.

His many TV appearances include: The Borgias, Poirot, Waking The Dead, Midsomer Murders and Sensitive Skin.

Belinda Lang is best known for playing Bill in 2 Point 4 Children.

Other television credits include The Inspector Alleyn Mysteries, Second Thoughts, Dear John, The Bretts and To Serve Them All My Days.

Belinda has also appeared in many West End productions including Dead Funny, Hay Fever, Life x3, What The Butler Saw, Things We do for Love, Ring Round The Moon and national tours including Moira Buffini’s Gabriel, Alan Bennett’s Single Spies and Oklahoma!.

Duet for One will be appearing at Malvern Theatres from next Monday to next Saturday.
