A Kind of Alaska by Harold Pinter (1982)

Based on Oliver Sacks’s memoir, Awakenings, Pinter’s thought-provoking play sees Deborah, a lively sixteen-year-old fall victim to a strange sleeping sickness. Twenty-nine years later she awakens and gradually tries to adjust to the world around her. Rapture presents an unmissable new production of this astonishingly prescient play by one of the twentieth century’s most influential writers.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Rapture Bites: A Kind of Alaska are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
