Photo Flash: First Look at Maureen Lipman & Harry Shearer in Oliver Cotton's DAYTONA
Maureen Lipman and Harry Shearer join Oliver Cotton in the West End transfer of his play, Daytona. Directed by David Grindley, Daytona will begin performances at the Theatre Royal Haymarket on 30 June and will complete its strictly limited 8 week run on 23 August 2014. Press night is on 7 July 2014. Daytona received its world premiere at London''s Park Theatre in 2013 and this production marks the Theatre Royal Haymarket''s first collaboration with an off West End theatre venue. Check out a first look below!
Gripping, funny, poignant and full of mystery, Daytona is a play with not one but two love stories at its heart. Set in New York in 1986, Joe and Elli share a love of ballroom dancing and are practising their routines for the next big competition. Despite constant bickering, the love they have shared for nearly fifty years is clear. Then one night, out of the blue, Joe's long-lost brother Billy bursts back into their lives with an extraordinary story to tell.
