Duet For One - Birmingham Rep
Dates & Times
There are currently no events listed for this show.

There's no God, you know, Dr Feldmann, but I know where they got the idea; they got it from music.

Music was everything to Stephanie. The passion was inherited from her mother and had blossomed into a successful career as a renowned violinist. But now, struck down by an unforeseen tragedy, she faces a life without her first love.

She is persuaded by her husband to visit Dr Feldmann to help her to come to terms with her condition. Dr Feldman's quietly probing questions force Stephanie to question everything she once believed - from her first steps into the music world to the basis of her marriage. Over a series of increasingly dramatic sessions, Stephanie is forced to face her deepest fears before she can finally face her future.

Duet For One is an intensely moving and ultimately life enhancing look at what happens when unexpected events lead you to revaluate your life. Belinda Lang (2 Point 4 Children) and Oliver Cotton (Trevor Nunn's The War Of The Roses and Richard II) unite for this must-see revival of Tom Kempinski's multi-award winning play.
