SUMMARY

Ladies in Lavender tells the tale of two sisters, Ursula and Janet, who live in a close-knit fishing village in picturesque Cornwall in 1936.

When a handsome and talented young Polish-Jewish violinist bound for America is washed ashore, the sisters take him under their wing and nurse him back to health. However, the presence of the mysterious young man disrupts their peaceful lives and the community in which they live.

Based on the hit film starring Judi Dench and Maggie Smith, this evocative and heart-warming play stars Hayley Mills and Belinda Lang and features the exquisite music from the film composed by Nigel Hess, for which he won a classical BRIT award.

Hayley Mills is from one of Britain’s greatest theatrical families. Signed to Walt Disney Studio as a child she has worked extensively in film and on stage. Her theatre work includes The King and I and Humble Boy, and on television, she plays Caroline in ITV's Wild At Heart. Belinda Lang has starred in the West End in Hay Fever and more recently in The Killing of Sister George at the Arts Theatre. Most well known on television for 2 Point 4 Children, she last appeared on tour in The Reluctant Debutante, which she also directed. Belinda last appeared at Oxford Playhouse in Alarms and Excursions in August 2011.

The production also stars Robert Duncan, well known as the jargon-spouting Gus in the award-winning Drop The Dead Donkey. He is joined by Carol Macready, who was nominated as Best Supporting Actress for her role as Mrs Clegg in Enjoy on tour and in the West End and Abigail Thaw, who most recently played a newspaper editor in the ITV Christmas special Endeavour, a prequel to Inspector Morse. Robert Rees plays the young violinist.
