About A Kind Of Alaska

Lunch will be served from 12noon, Hot Meat Pie or choose from our Wrap selection. Tea, Coffee or Soft Drink all included in the ticket price.

Based on Oliver Sack’s memoir, Awakenings, Pinter’s thought-provoking play completes Rapture’s season of classic one-acts. Deborah was a lively sixteen year old and part of a close knit family when she fell victim to a strange condition, a sleeping sickness. Twenty-nine years later, having been watched over by the same doctor, she awakens and gradually tries to adjust to the world around her. A Kind of Alaska recently had a successful run in London's West End, with Tasmin Greig and Meera Syal in the starring roles. Now, Rapture presents an unmissable brand new production of this astonishingly prescient play by one of the twentieth century’s most influential writers.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for A Kind Of Alaska are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
