Harrogate Studio Theatre

Connection is a Yorkshire ‘Thelma and Louise’ of an adventure where two women meet as strangers in the A&E waiting room of Harrogate District Hospital and share a life changing 24 hours.

Following on from the success of Deirdre and Me, Room 253, Project Juno and Studio Shorts- Associate Artist and Harrogate Lass, Rachael Halliwell is proud to be debut her first full length play at her home theatre. She is delighted to be working with exciting Northern talent including Andrew Turner, (Macduff in Fantastic Beasts, Coronation Street, and Father Brown) in a part specially written for him and reuniting with Rufus Beckett and The Paper Waits who will be composing original music for the play.

Two strangers are trying to escape their demons, Elaine needs to take a trip to Scarborough to say goodbye to a friend and Catherine is going to ruin someone’s life if she stays. The unlikely pairing decide to take a road trip together. It's a liberating experience for both of them until an urgent phone call from Steve, Catherine’s estranged half-brother, demands their return to the Hospital.

Tackling legacy, the role of carers- professional and familial, mental health and how we all need to ask for help at times. Funny, sharp and putting women front and centre, Connection explores a brief, shared moment in time and the impact it can have on the rest of your life.

Quotes:
‘Deirdre and Me marks Halliwell as a talented character actress to watch out for.’
The Scotsman
‘Halliwell has shades of Julie Walters, a dash of Penelope Wilton, an excellent example of a well-balanced piece of writing. ‘
