Marianne Dreams at Almeida from 13 Dec 2007

Moira Buffini’s adaptation of Catherine Storr’s classic novel Marianne Dreams will open at the Almeida Theatre 19 Dec 2007, following previews from 13 Dec 2007 – running to 19 Jan 2008.

This is the Almeida’s first production specifically for families.

It is directed by Will Tuckett, designed by Anthony Ward, with lighting by Neil Austin.

On her tenth birthday Marianne runs a fever and to her horror she’s soon confined to bed. She picks up a pencil and starts to draw to fill her time. That night Marianne dreams. Transported into her own picture she discovers she has the power to change her dreams. As she draws by day and dreams by night, Marianne soon realises the consequences of her actions and finds that she’s not alone – a sick boy called Mark exists not only in her dreams but also in her waking reality.

(Recommended for children of 7 years and above)
