Brideshead Revisited

De Grey Rooms

Friday 22 April, 7.30 pm

With the stunning, opulent décor of De Grey Rooms, it’s not hard to picture yourself transported back to 1943 to a tale of English wealth, where the classic novel by Bryony Lavery will be reimagined. It’s a story of nostalgia, past and present blurring and eccentric characters. Previously, it has been portrayed on the Big Screen, so it’ll be interesting to see how this new adaption unfolds.
