Tom Conti and Jenny Seagrove Star in BRIEF ENCOUNTER ON AIR at Theatre Royal Windsor
With a last-minute dropout from its programming, most theatres would go dark. Not so at Theatre Royal Windsor. Next week (from Tuesday 2 October) sees Tom Conti and Jenny Seagrove star in Brief Encounter on Air, the live staged radio play version of the movie classic, along with Sue Holderness, Roy Marsden, Daniel Casey.
It's the first in a two-week season of live radio play productions, which also includes Mystery On Air, a collection of adapted classic thrillers - replacing the previously advertised production, which is to be staged at a later date.
Tom Conti is one of the most respected and celebrated actors of his generation. Unforgettable as the leading man in hit films such as Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence and Shirley Valentine, he has also appeared as a myriad of different characters on both the big and small screens as well as on stage.
His recent movies include The Dark Knight Rises and Street Dance. Awards include an Olivier Award and a Tony Award for his stage performance in Whose Life is it Anyway? and a Best Actor Oscar nomination for his role in Reuben Reuben. He and Dame Judi Dench were jointly voted the Most Popular Actors in the West End in the last 25 years.
