DUET FOR ONE

By Tom Kempinski

Originally produced at the Almeida and following an acclaimed run in London’s West End, Tom Kempinski’s multi award winning play Duet for One comes to Edinburgh.

In this powerful and deeply moving play, Stephanie Abrahams (Belinda Lang2 Point 4 Children, Oklhahoma!), a brilliant concert violinist who seemingly has it all, is forced to re-evaluate her life when struck down by an unforeseen tragedy.

Faced with a truth too difficult to comprehend, she consults psychiatrist Dr Feldmann (Oliver Cotton, The Borgias,Midsomer Murders, Sensitive Skin) and through a series of highly charged encounters is led to examine her deepest emotions and finally to consider a future without music.

Two of British theatre’s finest actors rise to the challenge of portraying this duel between two razor sharp minds and the wry humour that underlines their relationship.Tom Kempinski’s dazzling play emerges as a gripping, poignantly funny and ultimately life- enhancing tribute to the human spirit.
