Based on the iconic novel 'Rita Hayworth and The Shawshank Redemption'  by Stephen King, Frank Darabont's 1994 film, starring Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman, made The Shawshank Redemption one of the best loved stories of our generation. Now Lane Productions presents the World Stage Premiere of a stage version written by Owen O'Neill and Dave Johns, directed by Peter Sheridan, at the Gaiety Theatre from May 14th to June 20th 2009. The Shawshank Redemption is the inspiring and powerful story of one man's incredible self belief, indomitable spirit and long struggle against injustice; this eventually not only sets him free but frees the minds and souls of his fellow inmates. Reg Cathey, best known for his role as Norman Wilson in 'The Wire', will play Red, while Kevin Anderson, whose film credits include 'Sleeping with the Enemy' and 'Charlotte's Web', will play Andy Dufresne. Tickets priced between €25 and €55 are on sale now from usual outlets.
