“Remember, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things… and no good thing ever dies”.
Based on the novella “Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption” by Stephen King.
The Shawshank Redemption examines desperation, injustice, friendship and hope behind the claustrophobic bars of a maximum-security facility.
Despite protests of his innocence, Andy Dufresne is handed a double life sentence for the brutal murder of his wife and her lover. Incarcerated at the notorious Shawshank facility, he quickly learns that no one can survive alone.
Andy strikes up an unlikely friendship with the prison fixer Red, and things take a slight turn for the better. However, when Warden Stammas decides to bully Andy into subservience and exploit his talents for accountancy, a desperate plan is quietly hatched…
The Shawshank Redemption was adapted for the stage by Owen O’Neill and Dave Johns. The production first debuted in Dublin in 2009.
