Never Let Me Go

20 September – 12 October 2024
Rose Theatre, Kingston

A play by Suzanne Heathcote
Based on the novel by Kazuo Ishiguro
Directed by Christopher Haydon

You were brought into this world for a purpose.

And your futures — all of them — have been decided.

Kazuo Ishiguro’s international best-selling novel arrives on stage in this world premiere of Suzanne Heathcote’s gripping new adaptation.

What if you discovered your whole reason for being was not about your life but about making someone else’s possible? Your dreams, your desires, your love for another, all of them irrelevant in a world that values only what you give, without question or condition, to someone you’ve never met and will never know.

Memory and reality collide in this stunning new staging that challenges us to think about what it means to be human. What it means to have hope and heart — to love and to lose.

A Rose Original Production with Bristol Old Vic, Malvern Theatres, and Royal & Derngate, Northampton
