The semi-derelict Bluebell Hotel is the emotional pivot for three generations of the Holmes family in Simon Stephens’ (Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time) Olivier Award winning play.

The drama moves to present-day Plymouth exposing infidelity, domestic
violence, addiction, love and loss in the lives of the young and the elderly with
compassion and without judgement. Moving and affirming the play reveals
in perfectly observed detail our need to forgive and to be forgiven.

This vibrant ensemble of graduating actors from the Plymouth Conservatoire – a professional training facility for actors, dancers, directors and theatremakers offering degree level tuition, in partnership with University of Plymouth – have been blind cast. This innovative practice sees actors cast on merit and without considering their ethnicity, age, sex or gender, bringing new life to this moving drama.

More information about cutting-edge training opportunities with Plymouth Conservatoire is accessible on University of Plymouth’s webpages.
