Newport Playgoers season continues this week at Newport’s Dolman Theatre with Ladies in Lavender, an evocative, heart-warming story of unfulfilled dreams and unrequited love.
Based on the hit film screenplay by Charles Dance starring Judi Dench and Maggie Smith, and on the original short story by William J Locke, Ladies in Lavender tells the tale of two sisters, Ursula and Janet, who live in a close-knit fishing village in picturesque Cornwall in 1936.
When a handsome and talented young Polish violinist bound for America is washed ashore, the Widdington sisters take him under their wing and nurse him back to health. However, the presence of the mysterious young man disrupts their peaceful lives and the community in which they live.
Ladies in Lavender runs from Tuesday November 12 until Saturday November 16 2019 with performance times from Tuesday to Friday at 7.15 pm and Saturday at 2 pm
Tickets are available at http://www.dolmantheatre.co.uk or at the box office on the performance dates.
