Adam Lilley – Rain Man

Adam will be playing Babbitt family lawyer Mr Mooney in the Classic Screen to Stage Theatre Company’s production of Rain Man, presented by Bill Kenwright, directed by Jonathan O’Boyle (An American in Paris, Aspects of Love, This House), and debuting on the 21st of August at the Windsor Theatre Royal before touring around the nation and finishing in late November in Northampton. 

The inaugural production by this company, it is a direct retelling of the 1988 Best Picture Oscar winner starring Matthew Horne (Gavin & Stacey, Bad Education) and Ed Speleers (Downton Abbey, Wolf Hall) as brothers Raymond and Charlie Babbitt,  originally played by Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise. 

It tells the story of an abrasive selfish and young wheeler-dealer Charlie who, after the death of his estranged father, is bequeathed a vintage cream-coloured Buick Roadmaster convertible. However, the bulk of his father’s $3 million estate went to an as-yet unknown party.

Charlie discovers that the money is being directed to a mental institution where Charlie meets his brother Raymond, an idiot savant with unfathomable skills at mental arithmetic. In an attempt to get his hands on his father’s fortune, he takes Raymond out of the facility and they embark on a road-trip across America but Charlie soon discovers that Raymond is worth more to him than anything they could win at the Blackjack tables.

Julie Barclay – Loot

Julie features as Mrs Mary McLeavy in Joe Orton’s Loot, produced by Black RAT productions in association with the Blackwood Miner’s Institute, directed by Richard Turnley and will be touring throughout Wales in Autumn. 

Dennis works for an undertaker. Hal’s old Mum has just died. Ludicrous slapstick meets dubious morals as the two young friends stash the proceeds of a bank robbery in Mum’s occupied coffin, all whilst trying to avoid a crazed policeman, a gold-digging nurse and a grieving widower.

With the money safely hidden, there’s no place for Mum whose body keeps re-appearing at the most inopportune times and our reprehensible theives  stumble their way through the story with hilarious consequences.
