Daytona races into town

More big names at the Rep.


Birmingham Repertory Theatre’s season continues later this month with a new play written by Oliver Cotton and featuring an all-star cast.

Daytona will play at the recently re-opened venue from 21st-26th October as part of its eight week UK tour. Directed by David Grindley and starring Maureen Lipman, Harry Shearer (The Simpsons, This is Spinal Tap, Saturday Night Live) and John Bowe (Cranford, Sweeney Todd), the play is a haunting, funny and poignant play full of mystery, with not one but two love stories at its heart.

Happy in their shared passion for ballroom dancing, Joe and Elli plan to win the next big competition. But the unexpected arrival of a figure from their past threatens to throw everything off balance. What can this man possibly want of them on this cold winter’s night? What can be gained from this uneasy reunion? When they discover the story behind his sudden return, Joe and Elli must confront a profound moral dilemma.
