Bryony Lavery to adapt Brideshead Revisited for the stage

English Touring Theatre and York Theatre Royal will tour a new production of Brideshead Revisited
by -

A new stage adaptation of Brideshead Revisited will tour later this year in what will be the first large-scale production of the novel.

The show has been adapted from Evelyn Waugh’s novel by Bryony Lavery and will be co-produced by English Touring Theatre and York Theatre Royal.

The play will open at York Theatre Royal on April 26 and will be directed by the theatre’s artistic director Damian Cruden.

It will then tour Bath, Southampton, Cambridge, Malvern, Brighton and Oxford.

The production forms part of ETT’s 2016 season, which also includes the previously announced revivals of French Without Tears and Peter Whelan’s The Herbal Bed.

The Herbal Bed is a co-production with Royal and Derngate and the Rose Theatre Kingston.
