‘Oliver Cotton’s new play finds the much-loved Maureen Lipman in first-rate form. It is a gripping story, powerfully told and excellently performed’
"Maureen Lipman's delivery is utterly mesmerising"
Following its critically acclaimed world premiere at London’s Park Theatre last year, Daytona transfers to the West End this Summer for 8 weeks only.
Gripping, funny, poignant and full of mystery, Daytona is a play with not one but two love stories at its heart. Set in New York in 1986, Joe and Elli share a love of ballroom dancing and are practising their routines for the next big competition. Despite constant bickering, the love they have shared for nearly fifty years is clear. Then one night, out of the blue, Joe's long-lost brother Billy bursts back into their lives with an extraordinary story to tell.
Starring theatre legend Maureen Lipman, whose extensive credits include Oklahoma! at the National Theatre, A Little Night Music for the Menier Chocolate Factory and When We Are Married in the West End. Making his West End stage debut, Harry Shearer is known to millions as the voice of many different characters for The Simpsons, most notably as Mr Burns, Principle Skinner and Ned Flanders. They are joined by the writer of Daytona, Oliver Cotton as Billy. Oliver’s theatre writing credits include The Enoch Show for the Royal Court, Scrabble for the National Theatre and Man Falling Down for Shakespeare’s Globe.
