A Kind of Alaska by Harold Pinter

This thought provoking play is based on Oliver Sack’s memoir, Awakenings. Deborah was a lively sixteen year old and part of a close knit family when she fell victim to a strange condition, a sleeping sickness. Twenty-nine years later, having been watched over by the same doctor, she awakens and gradually tries to adjust to the world around her. A Kind of Alaska recently had a successful run in London’s West End, with Tasmin Greig and Meera Syal in the starring roles. This is a new production of this astonishingly prescient play by one of the twentieth centuries most influential writers.
