RAIN MAN

Based on the Oscar winning film which famously starred Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman, Bill Kenwright presents the inaugural Classic Screen to Stage Theatre Company with a production of RAIN MAN, which won Oscar’s for Best Picture, Best Screenplay, Best Director and Best Actor for Hoffman.

When self-centred salesman Charlie Babbitt discovers that he has a long-lost older brother, Raymond, who has inherited the family multimillion dollar fortune, he sets out to get ‘his half’. Raymond is an autistic savant, has a remarkable memory and a genius for numbers. Determined to get his hands on the money, Charlie ‘borrows’ Raymond from the institution where he has spent most of his life. As the two brothers embark on a trip across America, Charlie soon discovers that Raymond is worth more than he could have ever imagined.

Starring in the role of Raymond Babbit is actor and comedian MATHEW HORNE best known for playing Gavin in the much-loved, double BAFTA winning comedy series Gavin and Stacey. Horne also starred in the BBC series The Catherine Tate Show, and Jack Whitehall’s Bad Education. His most recent stage credit was The Miser opposite Griff Rhys Jones and Lee Mack at London’s Garrick Theatre. Starring as his brother Charlie Babbit is ED SPELEERS, best known as Jimmy Kent in the worldwide hit and Golden Globe award winning series Downton Abbey. Speleers came to fame after landing the lead role in the fantasy blockbuster Eragon, since then he has starred in many films and TV series and has just been announced as joining the cast of Outlander.
