Bill Kenwright Productions present
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 discovers that his long-lost brother Raymond, an autistic savant, has inherited the family fortune, he sets out to get ‘his half’. Starring Chris Fountain (Hollyoaks, Coronation Street, Dancing On Ice and Girlfriends) and Adam Lilley (The King’s Speech, The 39 Steps, West End; Gaslight, ATG UK Tour).
“…his performance was superb and distinctive as savant Raymond. … it reflects on how good he was that I didn’t think about Dustin Hoffman once during the 2hour 15 minute performance.” – Behind the Arras
Unfortunately due to illness Paul Nicholls is unable to perform in Rain Man at The Lowry from 11 – 16 Mar. The role of Raymond Babbitt will be played by Adam Lilley. Adam has proven to be brilliant in this important role, bringing energy and passion to the role alongside Chris Fountain in this dynamic and exciting production.
“Adam Lilley as the challenged Raymond delivers a stunning performance…” – Worcester News
