The End of the Affair 28th and 29th April 2015

Starring Neil Roberts (Holby City), George Telfer (Emmerdale) and Sarah Stanley (Alan Ayckbourn’s Roundelay)

Set in London during and just after World War II, The End of the Affair tells the story of up and coming writer Maurice Bendrix and his passionate relationship with Sarah Miles, the wife of an impotent civil servant.

After a violent episode at Maurice’s apartment, Sarah suddenly and without explanation breaks off the affair. This very intimate story examines themes of obsession and jealousy, enhanced by writer Graham Greene’s evocative analysis of the love of self, the love of another, and the love of God.

Acclaimed theatre company Talking Scarlet brings this classic text to stage following visits to the Opera House with Devil at Midnight and Double Death.

Enjoy a 2 course pre show dinner, tickets to see The End of the Affair at the Buxton Opera House, overnight accommodation and an award winning Full English Breakfast all from £ per person based on 2 guests sharing a room.
