★★★★ “A heartbreaking revival of Simon Stephens’ play featuring a superb performance from Cary Crankson.” – The Stage
NOMINATED! Cary Crankson, Male Performance in a Play, Off West End Awards
1983, Gravesend. Jamie has committed a crime. What he doesn’t know is that this event will shape the next 20 years of his life. Originally presented at the Royal Court Theatre in 2004, Country Music is a subtle, yet powerful play by Simon Stephens, whose work includes the multi award winning The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and On the Shore of The Wide World.
A play about protection, atonement, but also about how our experiences and circumstances can define who we are, but not necessarily who we become.
Directed by the two times OFFIE nominated director Scott Le Crass whose previous credits include Elmer (UK and International tour), Sid (UK tour) and Kicked in the Sh**ter (Hope Theatre, Theatre in the Mill, Bradford).
Presented by Free Run Productions
