Rehearsals are well under way for the premiere of the Pilot Theatre and York Theatre Royal premiere of Tony-Award Nominee Bryony Lavery's(Frozen and Beautiful Burnout) new adaptation of Graham Greene's iconic 1938 novel of sin and redemption Brighton Rock.

Directed by Pilot Theatre's new Artistic Director Esther Richardson and featuring a soundtrack composed by the acclaimed singer, musician and composer Hannah Peel, Brighton Rock will open at York Theatre Royal from 16 February till 3 March and then tour till the 26 May.

As two seventeen-year olds, Pinkie and Rose get embroiled in a vicious gang war in Brighton where one brutal murder leads to the next. The police are impassive - but the courageous and life embracing Ida Arnold wants the truth. Nothing scares her. Whatever the cost, she'll see justice is done.

Written in 1938, Graham Greene's classic novel of good and evil was first adapted for the stage at the Garrick Theatre with Richard Attenboroughplaying Pinkie, a role he resumed in the iconic 1947 film version. In 2010 Greene's novel was remade, setting it in 1964, with Sam Riley, Andrea Riseborough and Helen Mirren. In 1993 Vicky Featherstone directed David Hurlock's stage adaptation of the novel at West Yorkshire Playhouse and in 2004 John Barry and Don Black wrote a musical version which ran at the Almeida Theatre.

Brighton Rock's exciting cast will feature Jacob James Beswick; Gloria Onitiri; Sarah Middleton; Angela Bain; Marc Graham; Chris Jack;Jennifer Jackson; Dorian Simpson and Shamira Turner

Brighton Rock will premiere at York Theatre Royal from the 16 February to 3 March and then tours to Brighton, Colchester, Hull, Cheltenham, Winchester, Watford, Birmingham, Newcastle, Mold, Derby and finally Salford.
