The Shawshank Redemption based on the short novel Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption by Stephen King has posted early closing notices for 29 Nov 2009 in the West End at the Wyndham’s Theatre.
This iconic story inspired the ever popular film and is adapted by Owen O’Neil and Dave Johns, and directed by Peter Sheridan.
Andy Dufresne is convicted of murdering his wife and his lover and is sent to the notorious Shawshank Prison to serve two life sentences. Stripped of his life, family and freedom, Andy is forced to endure a spirit-crushing routine. But with his quiet strength and inner courage, there is one thing that Andy never loses – and that is hope.
This unforgettable story of courage, friendship and daring to hope stars Kevin Anderson (Sleeping with the Enemy, member of the acclaimed Steppenwolf Theater Company) and Reg E. Cathey (from cult US television The Wire).
