A Room With A View comes to London’s West End starring Felicity Kendal
Felicity Kendal returns to the West End to lead the cast in a new adaptation of E M Forster’s classic romantic comedy A Room With A View.
With its cast of vivid characters, this elegant comedy written in 1908, is widely recognized as one of the finest novels of the twentieth century.
The award-winning Merchant Ivory film adaptation in 1985 starring Helena Bonham Carter, Maggie Smith and Judie Dench was voted number nine in The Guardian’s list of the best romantic films of all time.
Directed by Adrian Noble, this classic story is adapted for the stage by Simon Reeves.
English rose Lucy Honeychurch is touring Italy with her prim spinster cousin Charlotte Bartlett as chaperone.
When Lucy makes the mistake of fraternising with the lower-class Mr Emerson and his handsome son George at their Florentine pensione Charlotte is disapproving, however when she witnesses Lucy and George kissing, she has no option but to whisk Lucy away.
Safely home at the family’s Surrey estate and sworn to secrecy over the kiss, Lucy becomes engaged to eminently suitable (but priggish and pretentious) Cecil Vyse.
But will Lucy be able to repress her feelings when she discovers that the Emersons have taken a house in the village?
The cast features Felicity Kendal with further casting to be confirmed
Adapted by Simon Reeves, directed by Adrian Noble.
