Casting news

FULL casting has been announced for Rain Man. The inaugural production of Bill Kenwright’s Classic Screen to Stage Theatre Company, it runs at Richmond Theatre from November 5 to November 10, 2018, as part of a UK tour.

Joining previously announced Gavin and Stacey star Mathew Horne (as Raymond Babbit) and Downtown Abbey’s Ed Speleers (Charlie Babbit) are Mairi Barclay (Pippin), Hannah Barker (Holby City), Elizabeth Carter (Dreamboats and Petticoats), Adam Lilley (The 39 Steps), Neil Roberts (Mamma Mia!) and Joe Sellman Leava (Monster).

Inspired by the heart-warming Oscar-winning film, which famously starred Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman, Rain Man tells the story of self-centered salesman Charlie Babbitt who, when he discovers that his long-lost brother Raymond, an autistic savant with a genius for numbers, has inherited the family fortune, sets out to get ‘his half’.

Charlie ‘borrows’ Raymond from the institution where he has spent most of his life and the two brothers embark on a trip across America where Charlie soon discovers that Raymond is worth more than he could have ever imagined…

Rain Man opens at Windsor Theatre Royal on August 20, before touring to Milton Keynes, Cardiff, Eastbourne, Southend, Edinburgh, Cambridge, Brighton, Guildford, Leeds, Richmond, Derby and Northampton, with further dates to be announced.
