Two brothers, one destiny… Based on the Oscar-winning film, Bill Kenwright presents the Classic Screen to Stage Theatre Company’s inaugural production of Rain Man. Following previously acclaimed adaptations of films such as The Exorcist, A Few Good Men and The Shawshank Redemption, Bill Kenwright now brings to the stage the classic film that won Oscars for Best Picture, Best Screenplay and Best Director and starred Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman in roles that would define their careers, including winning a Best Actor Academy Award 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.

Funny, touching and riveting, this production of Rain Man brings an iconic story to the stage in this adaptation of a classic and extraordinarily moving drama.
