A SINGULAR drama unfolds at the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough this week as Tom Kempinski’s award-winning play, Duet For One, runs until Saturday.

Resonant with echoes of the life of cellist Jacqueline du Pré, Duet For One leads celebrated concert violinist Stephanie Abrahams through a series of highly-charged encounters with her doctor, Alfred Feldmann, as she is forced to re-evaluate her life and face a truth too difficult to comprehend.

Tickets are £12.50-£24.50.

Also at the SJT this week is Jerome K Jerome’s classic tale Three Men in a Boat, a new adaptation by the Original Theatre Company, which runs from Monday until November 22.

Having kept audiences laughing for well over a century, this tale of boating misadventure has become the quintessential example of the charm and wit of Victorian England.

In an attempt to escape the stresses of city life, three friends J, Harris and George, accompanied by their faithful canine companion, decide to take to the river to relax and rejuvenate.

But the holiday quickly unravels and descends into chaos.

Tickets cost £10-£21.50, phone 01723 370541 or book online at www.sjt.uk.com
