Opening tonight at Windsor Theatre Royal, JEFF ALEXANDER as Boggs in Bill Kenwright’s THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION which embarks on a national tour to venues including The Lowry Salford Quays, New Theatre Oxford and Theatre Royal Glasgow.
Based on the 1982 novella Rita Hayworth and The Shawshank Redemption, the play examines desperation, injustice, friendship and hope behind the claustrophobic bars of a maximum security facility. The 1994 feature film, regularly voted Britain’s favourite ever movie, starred Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman and was nominated for seven Academy Awards.
Despite protests of his innocence, Andy Dufresne is handed a double life sentence for the brutal murder of his wife and her lover. Incarcerated at the notorious Shawshank facility, he quickly learns that no one can survive alone. Andy strikes up an unlikely friendship with the prison fixer Red, and things take a slight turn for the better. However, when Warden Stammas decides to bully Andy into subservience and exploit his talents for accountancy, a desperate plan is quietly hatched…
The Shawshank Redemption tours until the 10th of December.
