Make a date with Daytona

The Birmingham REP is going from strength to strength. Their next ‘main house’ play after the sold-out-soon-to-be-transferring-to-the-West-End Twelve Angry Men (starring Martin Shaw, Robert Vaughan, Jeff Fahey and Nick Moran - wow!) is Daytona.

How do you top a cast like 12 Angry Men? Try Maureen Lipman, John Bowe and Harry Shearer...perhaps best known as the voice of Mr Burns from The Simpsons. Exxxxxxcellent.

Daytona is a haunting, funny and poignant play full of mystery, with not one but two love stories at its heart. Happy in their shared passion for ballroom dancing, Joe and Elli plan to win the next big competition. But the unexpected arrival of a figure from their past threatens to throw everything off balance. What can this man possibly want of them on this cold winter’s night? What can be gained from this uneasy reunion? When they discover the story behind his sudden return, Joe and Elli must confront a profound moral dilemma.

This brand new play written by Oliver Cotton and directed by David Grindley is visiting the Birmingham Repertory Theatre from 21 to 26 October as part of its eight week UK tour.

Tickets from £13.50 - £35 with concessions are available from The REP's Box Office on 0121 236 4455 or via the REP's website.
