Derby Theatre to stage Remains of the Day

A Nobel Prize winner in 2017, Kazuo Ishiguro’s novel, Remains of the Day, is a story for anyone who has ever been afraid to follow their heart. 

Now transformed into a stage play by Barney Norris, it is coming to Derby Theatre from April 23-27.

It’s 1930s England. Darlington Hall runs like clockwork under one of the last truly great butlers. Reserved and dutiful like his father before him and with the funny and forthright housekeeper Kenton by his side, Stevens’ faithfully serves his employer. Meanwhile, England stands on a precipice, as fascism builds and boils in Europe. 

Twenty years later, he travels to find an old friend, remembering choices made and not made, journeying to one last chance at happiness.
